The colors are sufficiently different so that I hesitate to call it a match.

that is similar. I don’t think (recall) the greyish stem and the volva was diminutive and almost constricted (looking to me) and it was under hardwood ( I realize some amanita can form mycorhizza with a variety of trees) I’ll certainly take your word for it Rod….It or not it?

Here’s one possibility… [edited]

although it’s one of the species that sorely needs data to be posted on its taxon page:


We think the range extends at least from the NJ Pine Barrens to the Great Smoky Mtns. Nat. Pk. That range is probably not complete.


sorry :(

my pick of the base of the stem is blurry, I should have checked the pic before I moved on :(

I don’t know of many zonate caps…

for species of Vaginatae in North America; however, unfortunately, none of them have names so far as I know.
