  1. Gary, your mushroom photos are SO gorgeous!! Posted 2 years ago
    1. Seriously <3 Posted 2 years ago
    2. Now I'm blushing. Posted 2 years ago
      1. Hehe, blush away! Your knowledge and beautiful shots are impressive! Posted 2 years ago
  2. Awesome! You could probably further identify this to Amanita muscaria subsp. flavivolvata! Would you like me to do that for you? The true Amanita muscaria is only known to occur in Alaska (within the US, at least). This little map (made by Jeffery Foxtrot) is pretty cool, and I always keep it on hand when looking at muscaroids!

    1. Hmmm, I didn't see that in the options although that is how I have it listed in my database here. There are some that I've seen here that are very yellow. Posted 2 years ago
      1. Muscaroids have some gorgeous color variations for sure! Our local Amanita persicina is just breathtaking!

        1. Can't say we have any peach-colored ones just orange-yellow and yellow. This one was going to be part of a series of shots taken one or more times a day to record its changes but that night an animal, maybe a rabbit or deer, had broken it off in passing. If I have time this summer I hope I can try that again but cage it first. Posted 2 years ago
    2. I can only change it in the title but not in the species identity window. It only gives three options and Amanita muscaria subsp. flavivolvata is not one of them. Posted 2 years ago
      1. It will have to be added to the database by hand. Would you like me to do that? Posted 2 years ago
        1. Do that. Posted 2 years ago
  3. Fabulous photo, Gary, this one has it all!

    Whilst at it, I want you give you some background on the working of the "identify species" dialog. There's basically 3 scenarios:

    1) The suggestions you get when typing are species known to JungleDragon. About 18,000 currently, so there's a good chance you do not get any suggestion. This just means JD does not yet "have" the species internally.

    2) If you hit [enter] on a species name not yet known to JD, it will try to corresponding species page on English wikipedia, read the info from there, and create the record at JD. From this point onwards, it is a known species inside JD. This automated process is not perfect and often needs data corrections, which the moderators do.

    3) If even Wikipedia does not have a species page for the species (which is very much possible), the search will end in an error. Next, you can request the manual creation of a species record. You can find this option under the "advanced" toggle of the dialog. Such a request triggers an email to moderator who typically pick up the request on the same day.

    Hope this helps!
