…these were out in the open in the grass edge along an oak forest next to a park road. Some large, caps 4 inches across. I do have the Amanita phalloides collection in the dryer though if you’d like CT phalloides I’ll send some.

No specimen, eh?

I think you’ve probably got the species. In recent years at least, you and I have seen this a number of times in CT.

this large fruiting included one that pushed through the asphalt road, broke apart the tar and was sill going strong. Lost the warts though on the journey.
