When: 2013-06-30

Collection location: Franklin Parker Preserve, Chatsworth, New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

39.8119° -74.5475°

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

==> A single entity growing in company with pitch pines in compacted soil between railroad ties of an abandoned railroad.

==> Even though the pileus is not convex, this could be Amanita sp-S01 based on the following features:

1) “Before the bulb is unearthed, this taxon gives the strong impression of a member of section Vaginatae” — a quote by RET @ http://www.amanitaceae.org/?US+-+NJ+and+PA.
2) Tuberculate-striate cap surface

==> Another possibility is Amanita sp-34.

==> The sample is being preserved for RET by J.A. & J.N. Burghardt of NJMA.
