species was completely absent from the area during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. In fact, there were virtually no Amanita sp at all.

We have received the DNA sequencing data.

The data provides a match to Amanita castellae.

Thank you, Aron, for sharing this material with us. We are now working to sequence all of the collections of section Vaginatae in the Roosevelt Herbarium. We are glad that in the present batch of data, we have found IDs for your interesting collections. Your photographs show the stages of pigmentation development and loss from this fascinating species.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
