Observation 117721: Amanita vernicoccora Bojantchev & R.M. Davis
When: 2012-11-22
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: on dryer as I type.
collected under live oak (possibly Shreve Live Oak), in area near where fall coccora are often seen. this is a first for the area: Henry Young’s yard, and certainly an insanely early date for this normal spring fruiter.

all four fruit bodies seen in this first fruitng here were this shade of yellow when they emerged.

Eye3 Eyes3
Recognized by sight: crazy early timing, but all features match: cool yellow cap, striate margin, thick white volva (thinning w/age), fragile annulus, cream colored stalk and gills and sac-like volva w/an inner limb. white cap was yellowish in youth.
Based on chemical features: older example smelled strongly of shellfish.
