Observation 111316: Amanita abrupta Peck

When: 2012-09-26

Collection location: Wharton State Forest, Burlington Co., New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

Specimen available

A single fruitbody growing under pitch pines.
The most interesting feature of this lepidella is its almost perfectly round and smooth bulb with symmetrically arranged carved out clefts that have a form of an elongated teardrop.
The smell is very cloying, slightly unpleasant, but I would not characterize it as that of decaying protein (I am bad at describing odors).
