Observation 11766: Amanita Pers.
When: 2008-10-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Went back today to take more pictures of all specimens (3 total) of this rather distinctive mushroom. I’m calling it an Amanita, but maybe I’m wrong. I have a hard time seeing right now, since I got my eyes dilated this afternoon. So I’d appreciate it if anyone else could see if this resembles something they’ve had experience with before.

Only one specimen, the one I took pictures of yesterday, has that annoying thick partial annulus still adhering to the edge of the cap. All other specimens seem to have expanded normally.

The oldest specimen is also the darkest colored. All specimens have dried considerably, and I don’t know whether I’ll be able to get a spore print from anyting now.

The youngest and smallest specimen has that ring on the stipe thing going on, but at least the annulus didn’t adher to the edge of the stipe. None look to me to have striations at the edge of the cap. But maybe someone else can see it. Caps look like they have a lot of humus still adherring to the top of the cap, which may make volval patches difficult to see (I don’t see any myself).

So … still in limbo about this one.
