Observation 108454: Amanita onusta (Howe) Sacc.

This dininutive specimen (~2" tall) was found at an NJMA foray in Schiff’s mixed harwoods (oak, beech, maple, poplars). Though this was my first time seeing A. onusta in the flesh (despite claims of it being very common in the eastern USA), it was very to ID owing to its unique appearance.

It was quite dry and most of the specimens found, with a few exceptions, were small and on their way out.

The specimen was preserved, and is currently in the hands of J. & N. Burghardt.
