Thank you for sending the packet of speciments.

This specimen will be queued for sequencing in the coming winter.

Very best,


Thank you very much, Huafang.

I’ll send them to you in small batch and ASAP too. You can manage them the way you want to.

My only request is that you not wait so long that you are send 15 or 30 or more…

specimens at a time. I no longer have an associate with me in the herbarium. It is really hard for me to take off a week or two to work on accessioning dozens and dozens of speciments. It’s much easier to deal with smaller batches.

Very best,

I’ve dried these three observations. I’ll send them to you, Rod. Should I send them to you now? I’m pretty sure I’ll find more Amanitas that you might be interested. I can wait and send them together. Let me know.

Thank you, David.

It would useful to sequence this material, confirm your observations, and broaden my understanding of cyclops.

Very best,


Actually, even before I saw Ryan’s proposal…

“Amanita cyclops” entered my mind. The short/squat stature, dark central umbo, and fairly long marginal striations all remind me of what I believe has been the same taxon, A. cyclops, found growing in the exact same location (<3 square yards) over the past several years. There was one that was taller and had more brown on the cap than the others obs 208335 (different species ?). But what I have been calling “cyclops” has exhibited some variation in cap color, with a few somewhat pale toward the margin. The stipe being partly buried in moss also fits my cyclops observations.

it’s an interesting little grisette that doesn’t fit neatly.

Amanita virginiana has a small partial veil and a small volval sack.

The lack of a p.v. and the substantial volval sack suggest sect. Vaginatae in this case.

The coloring on A. cyclops is more deeply saturated.

Is there dried material of this collection? If so I would like to be able to review it.

Very best,
