This just caught my eye.

A. albemarlensis is placed in series Penetratrices. I’m wondering if such a taxon would produce a fruit body featuring a basal volva that extends well above ground level (like the one seen here)?

I started a discussion of facebook (Amanitas of NA) that touches upon this (and which began as a question about what Bill Roody had called “Amanita umbrinolutea” in his West Virginia field guide).

As per the facebook discussion mentioned, I wonder if the mushroom seen here (32827) may represent A. jakeslandingensis?

I notice here (MO32827) that the cap features the thick abrupt central umbo that is a character I believe is associated with series Penetratrices. Photos of A. jakeslandingensis (some of which are your, Britt) also appear to exhibit this feature.

Might this be the elusive A albemarlensis?

The collection is certainly not accessioned in my herbarium. The new date information did not allow me to locate the collection. There remains the possibility that there is a box from Jay in the herbarium containing material that has not yet been accessioned. We have not found such a box at this time. Frustration.

Very best,

Rod

Thanks, Britt.

RET you’d asked about this below and I had not noticed until just now.

Can we call this Amanita pachycolea, Rod?

(and yes, I know that sp. isn’t supposed to be east of Rockies but I have lots of pachycolea pics from West Coast and it sure looks identical…did you do any further analysis on this beauty?)

I think this was sent to me by Jay Justice.

I think I have it along with a photograph by Jay.

The date on the observation is in 2010. Do you have the date of that foray in Mingo?
