I didn’t mention the staining of the flesh in the apparent bulb of the mushroom.

More puzzle.


Hello, Dat-guy from Somerville, NJ.

You’re just up the road from me (Roosevelt, western panhandle of Monmouth Co.).

Is there really blue on the cap of this mushroom? Or is it a gray that has obligingly been tinted by the camera and the conditions of the day?

It looks as though the stipe below the partial veil is yellow. Is that accurate?

A gray capped Amanita with long marginal striations, a white partial veil, and yellow on the lower stipe is a puzzle for me (at least before I finished my coffed).

Do you have a mushroom dryer? Or the time to drop by the lab with the mushroom?

Very best,

before posting a proposal. Also, seeing the stipe (stalk) base may be helpful.

Maybe a Russula?
