Observation 137881: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2013-06-09
0 Sequences

Single specimen growing in mixed woods in the Turkey Creek Unit.
Cap 7.3 cm across with striations up to 12mm long.
Stem 10.0 cm long with grayish appressed fibrils and partially hollow.
Spores white and not amyloid.
Spores ~ 8-10 X 8-10 and about as round as I’ve seen.
I’m a little reluctant to post older, single specimens but I guess some data is better than none.
Looking at Rod Tulloss’s east Texas regional checklist, I see sp-T05 as a possibility, but little to work with?

Hello, Ron.

Amanita sp-T05 and Amanita sp-T06 are both at least faintly zonate (have faint rings of different colors concentric on the caps). It is possible that concentric zones could disappear with age; however, the species is also more robust in habit in your images than in mine of the two code-numbered possible taxa listed above.

My inclination would be to think that the mushroom in your photos is something that I have not seen before.

The next time you send me some dried material, if you think of it, would you include this critter?

Very best,
