You cannot imagine how much fun this is for me.

Sometimes, it takes awhile to get a sequence (or a set of sequences, which I am hoping for in this case) back in hand. Please don’t hold your breath. I don’t want to be responsible for the consequences. :)

Very best,

I am excited to find out what comes back on this specimen and will continue to search for more specimens like it. Thank you for all your work, Rod! It is greatly appreciated.

The voucher for this collection has been sampled; the sample has been sent for DNA sequencing.

Quite welcome. I look forward to any info that comes from your work. Hopefully it will be useful to you for your research.

I hope this is A. keesii as well. It would be nice to be able to add that name to my species list as a definite. Hopefully I can find some more of these next year. I will be able to return to the location it was found anytime I want to look, so, maybe I can get more next year.

I hope you’re right about this mushroom’s being keesii.

We really need more material of this provisionally named amanita. It would be great if we could publish another name honoring Dr. Bas.

Very best,
