We can call it Team Gymnopanitacybe
(for Gymnopilus, Amanita, and Psilocybes!)
Like the Power Rangers of fungus hunting.
Amanita Ranger Suchen! Gymnopilus Ranger Bloodworm!
psilocybe ranger Tmethyl!

K, I’m tired. Sorry.

Beautiful frickin shots Blood.

Perhaps I should amend my previous statement to “[…]further north in Florida”. Richard is up near Gainesville and I am 2 hours further south near Tampa. Though Jimmy C. has been tearing it up in Georgia as well… hmm…

How you could leave those Florida fungi, Josh?

How about Amanita levistriata or A. sp-N50?

I’d be very interested in looking at your material…

Very best,


how big were these?

there are a number of similar amanitas in section validae (friable universal veil, breaking into warts, membranous partial veil, non-appendiculate margin, spores amyloid, yellow caps), but I don’t have enough experience w/eastern amanita species to venture an educated guess.

even w/out a name, great find. believe me, I wish that I could be there! ;)

you guys are having a wonderful season.
