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

The DNA will be of interest.

The warts seem to remain very white, and the cap pigment seems to get a bit darker. With the edge of the partial veil originally lifted beyond the point of attachment to the stem, this might fall in the pantherinoid group if the spores are not reactive to Melzer’s Reagent (inamyloid). The stem base is not encircled by rather dense rings. Instead the universal veil’s limbus internus (the part that was between the partial veil and the stem at the outset of mushroom development) seems to be draped on the stem like a few strands (or ribbons) of bunting. The bulb seems to have a blunt conic bottom. I’m very curious to see where this one comes out.

Very best,
