Observation 102467: Amanita flavoconia G.F. Atk.
When: 2012-07-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in mixed woods by itself. Tiny jumping bugs, plus fly larvae enjoy this mushroom. Cap a bit sticky. Didn’t find a cup, either. My error or was it not there for whatever reason; I don’t know. Odor & taste mild to lacking.

Should the annulus be so white on a ceasar?

My guess for the tiny insect-like creature on the annulus (also in the lamelae, but not as in focus as the annulus one) is some sort of Collembola, but if anyone knows better, please let us know.
