Beautiful intermittent rings of pileus warts and appendicular margin all which are universal veil remnants.

This is a great in-the-field side view showing the bulb and the zoned rings leaving a series of chunks or rings of what would have been the tissue bulb. It is tightly adherent to the stipe and gets dragged upward as the stipe grows.

A variation of the zoning of the tissue of the bulb. While the stipe grew this specimen deposited a lot of tissue along stipe down to the very irregular “ring” then there is a bare area on the lower third of the stipe, but left several ridges or rings on the bulb itself.

“Mushroom Dog” Canis lupus familiaris subspecies fungi

Another example a rings of tissue on the cap, appendicular material on the cap edge and at least one ring from the bulb tissue showing.

This one broke cleaner from the bulb material as it grew.

Recognized by sight: Dr. Tulloss did microscopic analysis and identified other samples from this same area picked on the same day of these photos. Without further analysis, the assumption is they are all the same “Australian (Southern hemisphere) Straw-colored Amanita”. In fact, some of these show a nice straw color.
