Observation 122014: Amanita calyptroderma G.F. Atk. & V.G. Ballen

When: 2012-12-31

Collection location: Mount Diablo State Park, Contra Costa Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Nimmo (barky)

No specimen available

Including this single photo to document a late fruiting of coccora on Mt. Diablo – there were at least four fruiting in this group, and all had striated margins, universal veil remnants on the cap, butter-colored smooth stipes all the way below ground.

I didn’t want to disturb this one by disinterring the volva, so hopefully this is enough to ID for the curious. I thought I had taken more pictures.
