I’ve come to be suspect of jacksonii in the south (except in the mountains).

It’s going to take me awhile to connect genes with visual appearance.

Very best,


the decoration is there — though

maybe not as well defined as many I’ve seen — these were a little older, a bit faded. But I’ll be happy to grab more of them for you if you like. I kind of feel like these are so commonly out at this point it’s hard to imagine them anything else — especially with the bright red button stage right there.

The images of the stipes don’t show the ragged red-orange decoration…

that is characteristic of jacksonii. Maybe this is something like sp-AR01?

DNA sequencing is offered.

Very best,
