To be clearer I will roughly divide all portions vertically so that all tissues are represented in the material forwarded to Chael. If there is a spore print I will protect it and forward it to Chael in its entirety.

Thanks to all concerned.

Very best,

It was found in Cloverdale California. Not Indiana.

Thank you, Chaelthomas.

Originally, it was just Cloverdale, i.e. without the state. Now it’s Cloverdale, IN. However, the collection dates from March (in the picture, too), and I doubt there are any amanitas growing in wintertime in Indiana. So, unless the collection date is wrong, perhaps it should be Cloverdale, CA?

course id share if the sample lands in my hands.

This does not seem likely to be sp-C23. It has a cream-colored cap.

But it does look like an interesting species.

Very best,


We do not have Amanita vaginata in North America so far as I know.

I wonder if Chaelthomas would be willing to share some of the collection that is voucher for this observation? I would very much like to continue my work on species such as sp-C23 by examining further material. I would not need the spore prints on tin foil.
