is typical of members of Amanita section Lepidella.

I have yet to find any of these non-MR/saprobic forms, however.

Maybe this is the year? I’ll be in Mingo this October. Is that too late for your thiersii?

Hypomyces damages it

These are in good shape, not distorted or dissolved away. White coating is flaky and very sticky, an indicator of A. thiersii.

See especially the last photo, with the flakes rubbed away from the larger cap.

Have you considered

that it might be under attack by a Hypomyces?
