This material has been received and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it for sequencing.

Cap width from margin to margin about 4"
It is quite large, one of the larger Amanita I’ve found.

I saved 3 clean specimen for you Dr.T
They will be on the way with the A.amerirubescens asap.

The leaves look very small next to the biggest specimen.

Can you give me an idea of its size?

These images are beautiful. Amanita jacksonii is much more red and has a very distinct umbo on the cap. This is something else. As you probably know, there is a very active genetically-based study going on on the world’s species of sect. Caesareae. I would very much like to see your dried material and sample it for the genetic study. Please let me know if you’d like contribute your collection to the study.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

Excellent images!

Looks a lot like A.jacksonii but with an all white stem. I know nothing of A.caesarea fruiting in the US- but this looks very much like that species with the sometimes silky white stem and sack like volva.

Either way, a beautiful find and post :)
