Isn’t that cool? Thanks very much for the update.

I should thank you for accepting the material and sharing the information derived from it. I’d send more, but I’m simply not making very many interesting finds these days.

This is the most southern collection that I have seen of this species.

Previouos collections have been distributed from Maine to Greenland.

Very best,


A very good nrLSU sequence has been derived from the voucher of this observation.

The sequences matches previous sequences derived from specimens of Amanita kryorhodon in the 99.9-100% pairwise identity range and morphologically is a good fit to the same taxon.

Thanks for all the material you have sent me.

Very best,


It’s good to know about the salmon color of the dried gills.

This happens in several species of the Vaginatae. At least sometimes it seems to be a constant trait. It will be interesting to learn more. Thank you for drying the material.

Very best,

I did collect this material with you in mind. The gills have turned a salmon color in drying. Collected near this observation: http://mushroomobserver.org/47637?q=2b7Nf

I hope the new 2015 mushrooming season is treating you well.

I have been working on the white species in sect. Vaginatae. Is it possible for me to look at some of this material?

Very best,
