I had a lot of fun collecting the material. I found many things that were new to me and I’m (slowly) learning Amanita taxonomy. I hope it rounds out your herbarium material from this area. Enjoy.

today and found another specimen. It wasn’t in the best shape but it had a fragile collapsed annulus just over half way up the stem. KOH on the cap was negative.

Very curious, BZ…

I don’t recognize this off the top of my head. Looks like an Amanita of section Amanita; however, maybe it belongs in the Validae and has striations on the cap because it is depauperate.

At first glance, I that it was a Gymnopus.

By the way, a public thank you is here recorded for all the dried material you brought to the NEMF workshop. Many thanks.

Very best,

R.
