Notes: Amanita found in upstate New York. Need help here, I have no idea what it might be. Sorry, on this one the base was lost, it was a little old, and the base had mostly fallen apart, so that feature is unknown.
9/4/2008 – Was able to look at spores on Aug. 30 -
Put a piece of the veil tissue under the scope to look for spores. The micro-shot is of veil tissue at 1000x in Meltzer’s. The spores here are globose and amyloid.
Measuring the spores, I found 14 spores and determined the ave. spore size : length – 8.04 +/- 0.42 (err 0.12) um, width – 7.70 +/- 0.41 (err: 0.12) – q : 1.05 +/- 0.05. The Q is close to 1, the spores are really globose.
Not sure if this helps make the id here…
