I dried this one for you, Rod.

Yes, despite tax paying time in the US, I am interested to see Elsa’s material. :) EDITED

There are many rubescent taxa in North and Central America. Over the past two years, the genetic evidence and the many collections from MO and my own collecting has been making me aware of a growing number of such taxa. At least one N. American taxon seems to have a very thin cap and, hence, to almost always have marginal striations.

The rubescent taxa make up a very interesting and wide spread group in section Validae.

Nice shots, Elsa.

Very best,


I am sure Rod

will be happy to see these! I am keen to hear whether he is impressed with what appear to me to be striking morphological differences with what we have in Maryland. The striate margin seems to have taken lessons from section vaginata! And none of the photos I have show such clear striate markings on the ring. The warts might be a little finer, but of course that can vary, but the color is dead on. Nice finds and photos!
