with those easily removed warts on that cap?

We now have a GB accession no. The release date is 7 June.

Thank you again for your generosity.

Very best,


I have finally received the raw data for the DNA.

I can confirm your judgment that this species is A. magniverrucata. We were able to derive a 2098 character sequence of nrITS-LSU joined. The nrLSU sequence is an exact match to one we have previously derived and deposited in GenBank. The nrITS sequence differs at two variable length single character repeats. Beautiful.

Thank you very much for sharing this material with us.

Be safe.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

I think that this is new to me for the SW.

I would be very interested in examining the material.

Smith had a species he provisionally called A. arizonica. It had a radicating base if I remember correctly. I also collected a more gracile mushroom that I called A. sp-AZ36 cryptonom. temp. Probably radicating bases are an adaptation to dry areas with only seasonal (infrequent) periods of rain. There are a number of such lepidellas in the sandy and fire-prone forests of Atlantic Coastal Plain. We certainly see plenty in New Jersey Pine Barrens.

Very best,
