in Hickory Run last year. It was an old weathered specimen, and I figured it was perhaps an example of A. velatipes with an eroded margin on the basal bulb. I did not collect or photograph it, beacuse it didn’t seem like very good material. Walt, do you remember the part of the park where you found this? The thing I mentioned here was found on the border of a spruce grove which is just off the main road (Rt 534) and sits between a house and the Hickory Run Creek.

Also, Walt, do you recall the area where you found this one?

A heavy rain shower just passed over Hickory Run within the last two hours, and more rain is in the forecast. I’ll probably drive out there for some hunting early next week.

A. sp-S01 at the foray. I’m afraid it didn’t survive the sauna in which the tables were located once the a/c failed.

The material that came in on the 4th was overwhelming, but I don’t recall seeing another collection of this species.

It was good to see you again.

Very best,

Amanita sp-S01 that hasn’t yet lost it’s partial veil?

The cap certainly fits with taxa in the North American “russuloides group.”
