Observation 110346: Amanita virosa (Fr.) Bertill.
When: 2012-09-11
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in a mixed pine, birch, and aspen forest, peeking out from beneath the heather. Solitary. The stipe was covered with downy, wispy scales below the annulus, and the volva was white, membranous, and had collapsed against the stipe, over an enlarged base (but not abruptly bulbous). I didn’t note any odor, but I couldn’t take it with me for later observation. Classical slender, nearly pure white Amanita. Beautiful – my photograph does not do it justice!
