Collection location: Hanover Industrial Park, Hanover, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]
Who: Dave W (Dave W)
By a planted pine on a lawn adjacent to the American Red Cross parking lot. I’ll try to get a species name for the pine.
I didn’t have my camera when the specimen was harvested. Volval sac collapsed onto the lower stipe while being transported. In the last photo, sac-limb is peeled away from stipe.
An older specimen.

This material has been received and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium.
with over a dozen host trees worldwide. With luck, your PA populations won’t escape into the wild and become invasive, like they have in CA.
Actually, this is the second location where I have collected phalloides in the Wilkes-Barre area. The other collections site is several miles away, but also on a lawn with planted pine (and oak, in this other case).
A friend of mine has collected what appears to be A. phalloides in a site in Luzerne County, PA where the habitat is not a planted lawn, rather a grown-over strip mine area with pines. I keep trying to persuade him to post the observation.
looks like you have phalloides in town. hope it doesn’t spread beyond your planted tree.
convenient that it is so close to the Red Cross office, though! ;)
