I knew I should have!!! I didn’t take anything to carry specimens in yesterday though so I left a lot of cool stuff behind. I’m almost tempted to drive the 30 miles back out to that spot…

you know, the color of these ARE odd…

did you save any?

a UV discoloring gray is not typical for velosa.

and looking more closely, I have never seen a velosa that has a sort of “patchwork” orange on its cap, either. Maybe not just an odd velosa but something else, entirely?

Certainly in Amanita section Vaginatae though.

Very interesting

I just assumed it was the same as this observation http://mushroomobserver.org/123129, mainly because they were growing so abundantly throughout the park.

the orange capped form on the L is more typical…

the “hen’s egg brown” form can occur as well.

UV can be pulled up the stipe as the mushroom expands, which is why you aren’t seeing a neat little sac at the base.

mushrooms are as variable as people!
