Recognized by sight: Looks like A. flaviconia, but has a yellow ring, stipe thicker. After a rain — sample fell apart. On looking at the pictures closer, there are rings of scales around the bulb much more like some type of A. muscaria.

The material can be assigned to A. flavorubens although the cap color is not at all common for that species…hence all my guesses at other possibilities. There are many small variations in the many sequences we have for flavorubens.

Very best,


Thanks Patrick,

It is something like the eastern taxon to which Dr. Jenkins applied the European name Amanita franchetii. I think I have seen this taxon several times before. It reminds me a bit of Amanita sp-F14 that Ellen Greer sent me from Florida years ago.

EDIT- http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita+sp-F14

I suggest looking at some of the code-numbered taxa on WAO. That’s what I’m going to do for a little while.

Very best,
