I look forward to reading your paper on this debate once it gets published, and then we can all decide what to call these things.

I noticed in a recent lecture by you that you agreed that they (saprobic amanitas) should be pulled out of section lepidella (I arrived a bit late and didn’t see the entire part of that talk, tho). I think that the rest is a matter of how we go about doing that.

AS IFs are usually met with AS IFs. We are not arguing what this is (we know that) just what we should call it.

Debate is good and healthy.

So glad you found this. I have checked a number of times where I found about 30 of these. Wanted to send you a specimen. None at all yet this year.
