…the lack of oak (which I can confirm, sans maybe a few seedlings), and the dark disc.

This is one of the specimens that shows that the center of the cap can be dark…

We got a good nrLSU sequence for it. Over 1400 characters.

Thank you again for your support, David. I appreciate it very much.

Very best,

This is scheduled for sequencing. I’m raising the priority for it.

ash and maple in the area. But these are not known to form associations with amanitas. The area where I found this one is 200-300 feet from the slope where I find most of my “old 17”. Lawn and my house separate the two areas. This type mushroom seems to (almost) always occur in grassy areas.

This is a real nice specimen, so even though I’ve already sent in multiple examples of this species gathered from my property, I’m drying this one and it’ll be included in a the next package.

Interestingly limited list of possible associates.
