Observation 103644: Amanita “sp-34”
When: 2012-08-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Grassy path near 20-25 foot tall oak tree. Same location and species as


There is never a ring on the stipe of this type. I find this type, or something very similar, in a few different locations. The ones seen here are possibly the largest fruit bodies of this type that I have collected.

Spores 7-11 × 6-6.5.

This is interesting to me… lamellulae seemingly randomly distributed among full length gills and with seemingly ramdom lengths.

Interesting about “imported beech” and “planted Blue Spruce” being two tree types, other than oak, where these little amanitas are found (see previous comments). This coincides exactly with my own experience. Aside from one very dependable patch under young oak, I have also found this under Blue Spruce and a non-native beech species… and nowhere else.

Thank you, David.

Accessioned today. We’re glad to have the material. My oak has not produced sp-34 for a year or two. I saw it (one year only) near the base of an isolated Colorado Blue Spruce that Mary and I planted one year after having a live Xmas tree.

Very best,

I find this under native oaks and imported beech.

This still looks like sp-34 to me.

I need better pics of my little guy from under Pin Oak beside my house.
