Observation 11800: Amanita Pers.
When: 2008-10-02
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Am not positive about this identification. Used Aurora’s Mushrooms Demystified key, and it ended up in the “Lepidellas”, but lacks any large warts on it. So, if anyone can suggest a better name for something here on the West Coast at about 2000 feet elevation, please share!
