I work all week and it’s a two hour drive. I usually leave unidentified Amanitas behind unless I am going to run into you :)

Just don’t get this one.

some conflicting signals (striate margin AND gills NOT squarely cut off). Confusing situation regarding what the volval looks like on the stipe base. (Can you get a good photo of the base of the stem?

Since this is the second example of this unusual mix of characters with a couple of weeks on MO, it would be interesting for us to take a look that this specimen if you happen to dry it for preservation.

Very best,
