May I suggest a couple of more brown-capped sect. Vaginatae from NJ from this season: obs 282582 and obs 287777?

The accession number in our herbarium is…

RET 784-10.

One of our tasks for January is to create a priority list for sampling of our collections of the Vaginatae received in 2017.

This is interesting material and will be included in that list.

Thank you for again calling attention to this collection.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

Herbarium Rooseveltensis Amanitarum (R. E. Tulloss) has received specimen.

We have received the dried specimen. Thank you. It is being accessioned in Rod’s herbarium.

I don’t think that it is sp-N65.

There is a distinct difference in the ratio of striations to cap radius. The striations in your species are distinctly tuberculate also, while they are smooth in sp-N65. Also, the latter as a paler and more orangey brown over much of the cap than does the mushroom in the present observation.

Very best,

Rod

You are welcome, Rod

I thought this might be similar to “sp-N65”.
I have accumulated a decent number of amanita collections, so I will be sending a package your way today or tomorrow.

Thank you for setting this one aside for me.

I may have seen this before, but I don’t immediately recognize it.

Preliminary DNA results indicate that I have several older species that are actually groupings separable by DNA (no surprise nowadays). Several of these grouping were thought to be “brown-capped species.” So I simply have to say that I don’t know where this critter belongs.

Very best,

Rod
