In the west it is red-orange with white warts and in the east it is yellow-orange with white warts.
This name shouldn’t be used for the eastern yellow taxon, no samples from the east have been used for its description. More DNA work needs to be done before a conclusive determination can be made on its placement.
The proper name for the eastern yellow form at this time is Amanita muscaria var. guessowii.
