Yes, I’ve used the tracking feature.

I signed up for both Amanita and Limacella. For some reason I don’t always get a notification; but I sure get a LOT of notifications. Many per day.

Thanks for raising the issue.

Rod, have you tried using the e-mail tracking? It sends out genus and species specific requests to the observer if the specific name you are interested in is proposed.
Here is the E-mail Tracking for Limacella:

To get there, go to the species or genus name page and click on the “Email Tracking” link right below the search bar in the upper left hand corner.

I’ve mentioned this before, but…

I am seeking dried specimens of all species of Limacella as long as the specimen is documented by AT LEAST a good color photograph. Written notes on the fresh material in a addition to a photograph would be a preferred state of affairs.

No one has ever done a world monograph on Limacella and the last effort related to N. American Limacella taxa is now over 64 years old. It was written by Helen V. Smith when I was about 1 year old.

Some of the readers of this may have heard me talk recently about the evolution of Limacella and Amanita and what a common ancestor might have provided for inheritance to the two “sisters.” Some very interesting hypotheses are being explored based on shared morphology (there’s quite a bit). At any rate, I realized that I was evading deeper knowledge of the limacellas at my peril.

Very best,


Nice Walt!
