1. Amanita sp-NFL10, Isl. Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
The cap is pale brownish gray, at first darkest in the center and over the marginal strations, but more evenly colored at maturity, and with striations occupying 25-35% of the cap's radius.
The stem lacks an annulus and is white, pulverulent near the apex, with irregular white floccose bands down to the upper rim of the rather robust, sack-like volva. The volva lacked a membranous internal limb in the material that has been examined.
The spores measure (8.4-) 9.6 - 12.0 (-13.2) × (7.0-) 8.0 - 11.0 (-11.7) µm and are subglobose (infrequently globose, rarely ellipsoid) and inamyloid. Clamp information t.b.d.
This entity has been collected only in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada—both on the Isl. of Newfoundland with Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea) and in Empetrum heath with dwarf Birch (Betula) and Dwarf Willow (Salix) on Saddle Isl., Red Bay, Labrador.—R. E. Tulloss
Due to delays in data processing at GenBank, some accession numbers may lead to unreleased (pending) pages.
These pages will eventually be made live, so try again later.
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.
