Observation 104686: Amanita amerirubescens Tulloss nom. prov.

Person who gave to me didn’t verify if a bulbous sac was in the ground, nor what tree it was near. He did find it in a place w/hemlock, but some mixed woods, nevertheless.

Yellow here, for example: http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/247794?q=W4PQ&size=full_size (see annulus).
Can it be amerirubescens w/all this yellow?

BTW, I’ve got to think it 99.X% likely some people have eaten A. flavorubens thinking they were eating amerirubescens & didn’t get ill. Is my thought sensible?

pale yellow, and there’s yellow material around the edge of the annulus. These are pretty bruised up; I’m guessing some heavy rain during development or pushing up through dense vegetation.
