Well, we’ll see what happens.

Good luck.

Very best,

I didn’t expect to be collecting this early and have not brought my drier. I will put the collection in my car lightly wrapped in newspaper. Should do the trick. I’ll send it as soon as its dried.

Hello, Bob.

2015 is off to a good start in New Mexico, I see.

This specimen is quite remarkable for the length of the lines of old gill edge material that descend the stipe. I don’t think I have ever seen such lines that took such a large percentage of the stipe length.

I would be very interested examining any part of this material that you would like to share. The DNA ought to be very interesting also.

Very best,

Very strange year. Every 10-15 years we see Amanitas in the Pinyon-Juniper areas. In late August. Its July 8th!
