Observation 111789: Amanita cinereopannosa Bas
When: 2012-10-01
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This Amanita was collected in the same spot (within a few feet) as this observation: observation 109386

Pileus: The cap is greyish brown, convex, with large and numerous brown/gray warts. It was 8 cm in diameter. Partial veil remnants, as well as volval scales, adorn the cap margin.

Gills: White, free, close. Partial veil partially attached to cap margin, covering part of the gills.

Stipe: White, with greyish powdery material on the lower half. Slightly tapering towards the apex. There is a white, lightly striated, superior annulus. Scales are present at the base of the stipe. The length of the mushroom is ~13 1/2 cm total, ~8 cm without base.

Base: Swollen, clavate, with scales on the upper base / lower stalk. Base length is ~ 5 1/2 cm long.

Odor: Foul, and strong.

Spore print: White.

Bruising: A day later, no bruising was apparent where I cut it.

Habitat: Roadside, in the grass, nearby many hardwoods and a few pines, in New England.

I will update with a picture of the spores under the microscope soon.

(Also, just for the record, I released the slug onto a nice big honey mushroom after the photographs!)
