Collection location: Gualala, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Viess (amanitarita)

No specimen available

Notes:
Constricted volva, staining red.
Collected and displayed by Doug Smith.

Or…with that two-toned cap, and thick, red-staining volva,
could it really be a pachycolea with a constricted volva?

Darn it, the amanitas are not fitting neatly into their (our) categories, again!!!
