Don’t worry about spellings.

If you are trying to point to the section rather than to the species start typing a name “Amanita sect.” and, at this point, the MO site will prompt you with the sectional names currently in use on the www.amanitaceae.org website. You can just select one and not worry about the spelling, etc.

Thank you for making note that I’m interested in a specimen of this taxon.

Very best,


I will make note of request for specimen..

This specimen was so pristine that I could not help myself but to let it be. There are (or at least, were) quite a few out there a couple days ago. I have documented your request for a specimen in my field notebook. I will do my best to find another for you. And as far as the Nomenclature is concerned, all I entered was Amanita caesareae. The site itself added the rest of the jargon that was apparently wrong. i will be sure to pay closer attention to that in the future. I would hate to put all this effort forward just to lose all of my popularity.

in your image. If you have a dryer, I would be very intreested in obtain dired material of this species. It is not formally described and is popping up all over the southeast (and beyond) this year and last.

A study of species of sect. Caesareae for as much of the world as possible is being under taken by a team with whom I’m collaborating. We’d really like to have some North Carolina material of this species from which to collect morphological and genetic data.

Thanks in advance.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
