The apparently colored gills are unusual in subsect. Limbatulae.

This specimen has been received and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium. Rod checked it out under the microscope this morning, and found the gill tissue has bilateral trama and the spores are colorless and cylindrical. This specimen is probably in genus Amanita, section lepidella, subsection limbatulae (because of fragments of a limbate volva found on the base of the stem). Elongate spores are also characteristic of subsect. limbatulae.

by all outward appearances to be an Amanita save for the not quite free gill attachment
