more of these a few minutes ago coming up in the same area that I harvested this sample from. If you believe you have enough material for a sample, I will leave them to reproduce. If you’d like however, I will retrieve another sample and split it as recommended for shipment to your location. As you like, please let me know.

Unfortunately, this specimen was not sufficiently dried. It looks like mold attacked it beginning at the base of the stem. I think that this can be avoided in future by splitting amanitas longitudinally before drying.

I’m sorry this one didn’t work out. It happens. Don’t worry.

I hope you find another specimen of this material

All of your material was a little damp, but this is the only one that had to be completely discarded. We’re going to lose the lower stipe on another one. I’ll post on the observation of the other collection that had a problem. We are re-drying everything that did not have mold and have high hope of being able to extract DNA in the future form those specimens.

Very best,

We received the specimen, thank you. Unfortunately, though, it is decayed and this specimen will not be accessioned in Rod’s herbarium.
