I suggest that you use the shorter name for the web page:


The odor of this species seems like apples or pears to me most of the time, but I have found one collection that smelled like new automobile tires…a real contrast.

UV remnants, both as rings on the bulb and a broken limb on the ground. Ornamentation on stipe matches the photos seen on the the Amanita Studies site.
