Collection location: Auburn, Washington, USA [Click for map]
Found several fungi that appear to be a type of West Coast Panther Cap.
First one was found on 5-5-2013. Caps looks just like a freshly cooked pancake.
A batch of other very similar found on 5-10-2013. These have similar coloring, but very pronounced warts.
Cap, Warts, ring under the cap, and multi tiered ring at base/bulb seem to fit most descriptions of Amanita Pantherina. Found roughly a half dozen growing at bases of tall,mature,short needle pines, in a heavy matt of pine needles/bark chips, at the edge of wooded area by the road.
Caps are brown/buff/tan with white warts. All specimens appear identical other than age, and were found several feet apart from each other. They reoccur several times a year, usually after a heavy rain followed by a warm spell.
will be collected, spore printed and dried.
