I’m saving the book for my eighties…

You’re welcome, Patrick.

I’ve got to get the website looking like I want it first.

I’ll put the book on my list for what to do in my eighties. (Don’t know whether that should get a smiley face for a frowny face.)

I’ll look forward to what you may send my way. We’re particularly interested in filling in distribution information for states and counties for which we have no material listed. [Sometimes that’s because we haven’t added the data to the site; but sometimes it’s because there’s no data we know of that we can add.]

We’re still working through the herbarium here, but have well over 4,200 collections cited now on www.amanitaceae.org (this includes hundreds of collections from the literature, especially types and other original material). Today, we exceeded 620 collections for which we have lat./long. data. It’s pretty obvious from the maps we’re generating now, that we are short on lat./long data for much of the world; but, from the insider’s view, I can tell you that we simply lack data for the central states and provinces of the North American continent.

Very best,


Thank you very much!

Glad to be helpful in your studies. I’ll be looking for more Amanita this year. Didn’t happen to see any A. citrina this fall, lilac or otherwise.

By the way, have you contemplated publishing a guide to Amanita — book, rather than online?

It checks out.

The specimen’s macroscopic characters and spores confirm that it is A. subcokeri and not A. cokeri. Thank you again for sending the specimen. It will be listed in the material examined for A. subcokeri on www.amanitaceae.org with a link to this observation.

Very best,

Did not notice smell

I did not notice much of a smell — wasn’t strong like the Lepidellas
or anything. I still have it, about half dried out, I’ll get it into
the dryer tonight.
