and was already quite well known in CA and i am sure elsewhere in the west, under its past two latin names, aspera and franchetii.

Amanita augusta is correct ID based on ITS DNA match.

Specimen UBC F27973. Before Bojantchev & R.M. Davis described this beautiful species in 2013, specimens from western Canada were consistently identified as A. franchetii.

old growth, species present, etc should go in the location description. The location field is purely for a geographic description of the location.
