Observation 108917: Amanita porphyria Alb. & Schwein.

When: 2012-09-05

Collection location: Lewis Run, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Garrett Taylor (cappy)

No specimen available

Two things got me questioning my initial judgement: the mushroom was growing on a quite decomposed log it wasn’t on dirt and the partial veil details. Partial veil was somewhat collapsed downwards, striations visible on upper surface, not delicate, and where it had separated from the margin was it brown. There was a small split in the base.
