When: 2013-07-20

Collection location: Keaiwa Heiau State Recreation Area, Oahu, Hawaii, USA [Click for map]

Who: P. Hill (phill)

No specimen available

This is a series of additional photos of Amanitas taken from the field as buttons, but later allowed to continue to expand, thus showing some very nice detail of the floccose material left along the stipe and pileus rim. All of them show some evidence of lavender discoloration on the bulb.

Collected, allowed to expand, and photographed by S.J.Greco.
