Glad to be of help. Thank you, Rod, for the hard work.

As part of the work on “citrinoid” taxa in the U.S. and Europe, the material… EDIT

from this observation has been sequenced for both the so-called “fungal barcode” gene and a second gene commonly used in molecular study of mushrooms and other organisms called nrLSU (aka 28S). We have compared your material with other collections from several countries of Europe, Canada, and several U.S. states. It appears that, as we previously thought, Amanita porphyria has a circumarctic distribution. The cap color may vary with age or within some populations. We now have both molecular and morphological support for our understanding of the species.

Thank you very much for sharing this collection with us. It will play a role in on-going studies of Amanita genetics.

Very best,
