I saw tremendous diversity on my six trips to central Mexico.

In edo. Mexico (Nanchititla State Forest) there were many species that looked like NE US species – daucipes and polypyramis seemed to be there. However, I was totally mistaken when I thought I had subsolitaria (had yellowish forked gills and the typical smell of subsolitaria; however, the Q value of the spores was much to low. Amanita lavendula was in the Sierra Madre Oriental.

Very best,


Thanks Rod

I would have been shocked if it was. The sect. Lepidella diversity is very good here, since there are many species of oak and pine in the area. The Lepidella pile is always very diverse, but after a few days on display they aren’t in good shape for drying.

It’s not chlorinosma, which doesn’t have a rooting bulb as these do.

Very best,
