have been having a banner year in Louisiana. We’ve had a number of really impressive fruitings. Big densely populated arcs lining the sidewalks, mainly in open areas near live oaks. In suburban and urban Baton Rouge, I’d bet this species is the most common, most prolific amanita we have.

Here’s a link for comparison with what we already know about the species.

Was this found with an oak or oaks near by? Was the soil sandy?

I have not seen a post of this species from Florida, at least not recently that I can remember. Since we now believe we have consistant gene sequences (nrITS and nrLSU) from this species, may I ask if we can have some of the voucher collection for this observation…if a voucher collection exists?

Very best,

Rod
