As I mentioned in a longer article on MuhsroomTalk, this seemingly gemmatoid Amanita is actually in the Amanita muscaria clade. We have 4 collecitons of it already and I recognize it in the field now. This is one of the 4-5 members of the yellow Amanita group in California that have been referred to A. gemmata gr.Dimitar
Can you explain me the characteristics that must have a microscope to see the spores and how to prepare the sample? And how do you photograph it?
