Olive text indicates a specimen
that has not been
thoroughly examined (for example, for microscopic
details) and marks other places in the text
where data is missing or uncertain.
The following material is derived in part from the
photographs and notes of the collectors. The molecular
research was carried out by, or under the direction
of, Dr. Karen W. Hughes (Univesity of Tennessee,
Knoxville). Other original research is by R. E. Tulloss.

Indiana: On south-facing slope in deciduous woods
with plentiful Quercus. Missouri: On

forest—primarily Quercus and

Spore data for collections provisionally identified as: Amanita sp-MO03 Tulloss
Each spore data set is intended to comprise a set of measurements from a single specimen made by a single observer;
and explanations prepared for this site talk about specimen-observer pairs associated with each data set.
Combining more data into a single data set is non-optimal because it obscures observer differences
(which may be valuable for instructional purposes, for example) and may obscure instances in which
a single collection inadvertently contains a mixture of taxa.
