Observation 11695: Amanita muscaria var. guessowii Veselý
When: 2008-09-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Could this be Muscaria var. formosa? Seems to have all the defining characteristics, and it’s found in Northeast America where it’s supposedly common.

EDIT: I guess the proper name would be Amanita Muscaria var. Guessowii?

Proposed Names

21% (2)
Recognized by sight: You definately have an Amanita. I’m reticent to call it A. muscaria var. formosa. The reddening of the stipe (stem) should not occur in A. muscaria.
46% (3)
Recognized by sight: The stipe suffers from handling. I think the color is mostly from dirt. Be aware that current research is likely to change the name of this taxon. R
