Observation 110799: Amanita subsect. Solitariae Bas
When: 2012-09-22
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

This specimen was observed in SEP after persistent rains, growing in mixed hardwood/conifer/birch forest. The cap measured ca. 15 cm diameter, the stipe ca. 2 cm. I was just passing through and did not have time to take spore prints etc. I originally considered A. vaginata var.alba as a possibility, but the stipe diameter/length appears much greater than any of the photos of A. vaginata that I have seen.

Recognized by sight: The membranous partial veil (fallen to the base of the stem) and the very powdery universal veil material on cap and stem (and all around on the ground) certainly suggests this is a lepidella.
