I’d prefer more mature material…

do you need a mature sample or will those work?

You’re welcome.

And thanks for looking for some more. We have some DNA sequences from the original collection from Marion Co., FL. It would be interesting to make a comparison.


thanks ret.

the Tequila Sunrise Slender Caesar.

I’d very much like to see dried material of this.

Morphologically and genetically distinct from jacksonii, apparently limited to the southeastern U.S. I only have seen material (including this observation) from Florida.

observation updated with shots of a specimen found right next to the original.

No shot of the top of the cap? [edited]

Do you recall the color of the cap? The color of the partial veil and the absence of orange felted material on the stem indicates that this is not A. jacksonii. The yellow on the stipe eliminates A. murrilliana. So maybe this is one of the “numbered” species or, maybe, A. arkansana.
