Observation 11273: Amanita farinosa Schwein.
When: 2008-09-17
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Free white gills, powdery gray striate cap, fuzzy bulb. Under pine.

I found a similar mushroom in West Virginia over the summer.

These mushrooms are small, about an inch in diameter. The fuzzy basal bulb along with no annulus makes me doubt Amanita. Pluteus also seems plausible, but the bulb is atypical of that genera and there are no pink tones on the gills.

I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t.

White free gills and does not look much like a Lepiota; tall and stately.
