We have received the dried specimen. Thank you. It is being accessioned in Rod’s herbarium.
the old material is still clear exoskeletons . . . mushrooms are so damned ephemeral . . . dried specimens are WEAK replacements for the real thing.
I’m saving for a microscope – so the damned spores are not going to continue to be out of my range of capability long.
Amanita agglutinata is one of the old names with one (short) modern type study on an ancient type collection. We have to make the best interpretation that we can. If it is a “thing” (as people say), then it would have to either fall into the sp-S01/russuloides complex or have narrower spores and (perhaps) a more persistent partial veil. It should certainly have a basal bulb with a volval limb that encircles the base of the stem so that it could be mistaken for a saccate volva. It should have a color that would fall into the very broad concept of “white” in the mid-19th Century. Could it be such a bright yellow. I don’t know.
Also, there may be some questions that we can’t answer.
With some trepidation….
