No red staining on the 3000 m elevation material.

El Terrero is at 2100 meters elevation, significantly lower than the high elevation taxon that you mentioned. I don’t think that one stains red either.

The other time I found Amanita flavorubens in Mexico it was at 2200 meters.

What was the elevation where this was collected, Alan.

I remember an amanita like this from relatively high elevations on Malintzi in Tlaxcala. I remember it was labeled “flavorubens” in herbaria. My impression was that it was distinct. On the other hand flavorubens may be a very complex grouping….

Very best,
