Observation 136200: Amanita rubescens sensu auct. amer.
When: 2013-06-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The one cap is approximately 8-9" across which is larger than any description I found of a blusher. The second specimen was 4" across which is more what I expected. They were growing next to each other under an oak along a sidewalk.

I’m interested to see your photographs. I am working with a group of people on rubescent taxa in Amanita, and (in addition) I noticed that the www.amanitaceae.org website cites no MARYLAND collections of the eastern North American taxa called “Amanita amerirubescens” provisionally on that site.

If you have a dryer and have the time to dry some material of this species (mature, but not old, old enough to drop spores), I would very much appreciate if you could send me a collection from Maryland.

Here is the WAO page on this species:


Very best,

Rod Tulloss
