Out of hundreds of species, I have only seen the same variant in Amanita aprica (section Amanita), A. magniverrucata (section Lepidella), and A. proxima (recently proposed to be moved from section Amidella to section Lepidella).
Instead of the common form of the 5’ motif of nrLSU (“TTGACCTCAAATCA”), the group listed has the form “TTGGCCTCAAATCA.”
Thanks again, Logan.
We have received the dried specimen. Thank you. It is being accessioned in Herbarium Rooseveltensis Amanitarum as RET 802-10.
do that, Rod. I’ll grab some tomorrow.
The mature spores are rather distinctive.
