Observation 138790: Amanita “sp-34” Tulloss crypt. temp.

When: 2013-07-03

Collection location: Hunlock Creek, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

I’ve made many collections of this small amanita from the same three square yard area on a path. Amanita Studies website, in the description of the stipe of sp-34, makes mention of “below the annulus.” Assuming for the moment that my observations of this type do represent sp-34, I think this mention of an annulus is likely a mistake. I have observed newly-emerging buttons, and there has never been any sign of a partial veil or annulus with this type. Everything else about my observations fits very well with the description of sp-34.

close to the ground. Now school is out, however. And all sorts of humans of diverse sizes and ages walk around the school yard. We usually get pretty good crops of amanitas and russulas under Pin Oak and imported Scots Pine (without Scots mushrooms, however) and imported Norway Spruce.


are your spies…

I’m hoping for a new flush after all the rain we’ve been getting. The amanitas in the yard of the public school have been appearing in large quantities according to my spies.


I have occasionally seen an annulus.

Anyway. I would go for the same name, David.
