Observation 106499: Amanita pseudovolvata Tulloss nom. prov.
When: 2012-08-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Just a nice specimen in its natural environment. I did not harvest this one. These seemed to be everywhere in Rickett’s Glen SP. I hunted two different area that offered different habitat. This one was on a ridge with oak and other deciduous trees.

The cap margin completely lacks striations.

I did not study this specimen.

Just snapped an in-situ, because it looked nice. I already had two similar collections made from the same state park, albeit from differnet habitat. I saw many of these smallish amidellas during this foray. So, I just lumped; hence, the “could be.”

But if you look closely at the zoom, there appear to be marginal striations trying to hide underneath the floccose stuff.

Unless the photo just doesn’t show them well, A. pseudovolvate should always have striate cap margins.
