The DNA from the voucher material for this observation provides an ID—-Amanita pseudopenetrans.

This ID is strongly supported by a combined nrITS and LSU sequence of over 1650 characters. The match to both the nrITS and nrLSU sequences previously derived is very good when variable length 1- (e.g., “T”) and 2- (e.g., “AT”) character repeats (of which there are several) are discounted.

The photographs would be good to add to our nascent page on pseudopenetrans.

Very best,


Thank you!
