Observation 12882: Amanita Pers.
When: 2008-10-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: this was brought back to the table by someone. it was noted by the collector (name unknown) that there was a ring around the stem at the time of collection but it had been lost by the time it got back to camp. He did explain that he was very careful to get all the “cup” portion of the universal veil.

It took me awhile to get used to how things work on MO; I can understand your situation. It’s good to have so many people coming aboard MO and posting their images. It’s amazing how many countries are being represented by new postings!

I’m still getting used to posting on MO. I only meant to select the genus Amanita without any specific epithet. Of course it’s not A. abrupta.

unlikely to be Amanita abrupta…

The typical bulb of A. abrupta is not present. Amanita abrupta has an eastern distribution in North America. The partial veil of A. abrupta is large and robust with a thickened margin, and its underside is firmly connected to the stipe surface by multiple fibers.

The weathering of the cap in this speciment makes diagnosis difficult.
