We have received this material and accessioned it to Rod’s herbarium it is scheduled for DNA sequencing.

I’m defintely interested in the two collections that may be the same thing.

As mentioned earlier, I’m thinking that they may belong the Phalloideae.

Very best,

Yes, it very well may be the same species as 179409…they were all found in the immediate area together (in the Pine Barrens), and do look very similar. And they were abundant. I may not be in the Pines again for until the 29th, but I will surely collect more and take notes if they are there.

BTW…I did dry all of the Amanitas that I collected/posted. No notes (sorry), but the specimens are available if interested.


Maybe the same species as 179409?

Maybe this is the small autumn species of sect. Phalloideae that I called “sp-30” (found originally in the NJ Pine Barrons). I see a partial veil remnant on the stem in both cases. Can you get more of this? If it’s “sp-30,” my memory is that it was fairly common at the sites where I used to find it.

Very best,


No herbarium specimen?
