Didn’t see any this year

I was going over my notes yesterday on what was found this year compared to last year, and I didn’t find any of these this year.

I guess these really aren’t A. vaginata, and what should get called specifically A. vaginata I guess is a little confused? I also find in my notes that I’ve called a few randomly A. pachycolea, I’m not sure there is evidence of more than one species in the preserve.

But the question then is what should I call these, if not A. vaginata? A. pachycolea? Or Amanita sp.?

Several observations from Los Trancos called “vaginata” have a graying u.v….

I noticed that several of the photos of vaginata sensu lato from Los Trancos have a graying veil on the cap. This is not a character of anything closely related to A. vaginata (as well as one can understand what “vaginata” is). If you happen to collect material with a graying veil, I would be very interested in seeing part of the dried collection. There are a lot of unnamed vaginate taxa in North America.

Very best,
