possible new species, white gills seems to be a segregating character. Two color characters (gills and stipe “decoration”—the felted extentsion of the internal volval limb) have often been very good indication of species separation in sect. Caesareae. I’m very interested to see spores from this material.

Does the yellow/orange color of the gills that is seen with Amanita jacksonii fade with age?
The mature specimens seen here had white gills, which can be seen in the pictures.
