I’d be thrilled if you would want to use any images of mine on your much anticipated site. I did have a bunch of dried specimens set aside for you that were apparently destroyed by an insect infestation and poor packaging. I’m sorry. The good news is, I have a few newer collections that are interesting that I’d like to send you. Face it, I’m not the best collector out there…I’ll be at the 2010 NEMF Samuel Ristich Foray, so if you prefer, I can give them to you there.

My image editing software has a “remove color cast” option that I use to get “truer” colors. I usually use it to remove the green light from my pics but it can be adjusted to any color in the spectrum.

I have a terrible time getting the color right on this species. My digital just doesn’t want to leave the orange alone and tends to turn it to far too deep a red. Can somebody give me a clue on this? Also, if you get a photograph with good color of a classy looking specimen of flavoconia, I’d love to use the photograph on the new website and the specimen in the herbarium. Even thought this is a very common species, it’s surprising how many crumby photographs I have taken of it.

Pretty soon, the new Amanitaceae site will have a list of localities from which specimen are in my herbarium. Even for common things, I’m interested in bumming specimens from states that are not well covered already. I was working on Amanita today and notice that there are a lot of gaps (created by the “oh, I must already have one from New York” type of mis-thinking).

Very best,
