Observation 107831: Amanita sinicoflava Tulloss
When: 2012-08-29
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Cap diameters (unspread) just under 2 cm, each with central umbo. Cap color dark ivory to pale tan. Volval sac with distinct gray tint, lower 1/3 collapsed about base of stipe. Hemlock woods, with some hardwoods.

Unfortunately, the specimens sat in my car for a few hours, and were a bit beat up by the time I got them home. No spore drop. Hoping the dehydrated versions turn out okay.

Except for the cap color and the small size, these remind me of A. sinicoflava… The stipes stained brownish.

You’re right, David.

I did enjoy seeing these little guys. This is the first species I ever described on my own…at the urging of Dr. Bas.

I think that being very small doesn’t bump them out of the species…so far as my experience goes.
