Amanita multisquamosa was as close as I could get it to anything with a name. Ironically, I’d heard or seen somewhere—it may have been mentioned by Michael Kuo on his MushroomExpert.com site —of a peculiar Amanita from CO and I think specifically from the are where this was found.

The geography and the short marginal striations and the distribution of color…

suggest that this amanita may not be A. multisquamosa.

Interesting, Britt.

Very best,
