Hey thanks David-

I have found these little guys for a few years now- and I always just assumed gemmata due to the canary yellow cap, easily removed patches and universal veil. True that the volva is not very bulbous and is almost constricted (almost like a grissette or A.constricta).

I’ll change this to Amanita sp. for the time being until I track down some more info.

Thanks for the advice and help- hope you are having a nice summer bounty down in the bay area!

Hi Drew,

The thin remnant universal veil and the small volva might indicate this is not a gemmata. Jan Lindgren might have an opinion.
