Observation 141076: Amanita “sp-S01” Tulloss
When: 2013-07-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Cant call Amanita russuloides due to lack of prominent bulb. Granted I did have extraction issues, I don’t believe I lost much.
Cant call sp-34 because stem appears smooth and lacking annulus in all photos I have researched

And you’re welcome for the boost, I love seeing a youngun with skills and thirst for learning. Keep at it, love seeing the NC shrooms

I think that there is something of a concensus concerning putting quotation marks…

around code number type names. I don’t think it’s done completely consistently; however, when I was told about, it I tried to be consistent. Frankly, on MO, fashions change and cycle; so you have to see what the current trend is. If Amanita sp-S01 doesn’t come up in the little set of possible outcomes of your typing of a name, then consider entering Amanita “sp-S01”. That’s what just happened to me.

Very best,


muscarioids are more common in cooler weather…

and, then, more likely to appear with conifers (in North America).

But I have a looong way to go before becoming a good ID’er. As for the hunting, I have that down. With a bit more determination than called for at times. One last question and I will change this post. Where are the A. muscs? All of these Amanita finds and not one muscaria. Im not asking for reasons of consumption. The last thing I need is “spiritual enlightenment”. Its just odd they are being spotted from Florida to Canada and everywhere between. Except here. And I hope I have proven so far, that I leave no stone unturned. So its not from lack of hunting.

Pete, I think you’re killing it

regardless of your equipment situation at the moment. keep working hard, you’re turning into an awesome hunter and IDer.

I say, “Go for it.”

The stem is usually longer on sp-S01 (ess-zero-one) than it is on praecox. And the stem of the former usually has enough underground so that you have to excavate.

Very best,


Well sir.. It is your call…

Is it safe enough to list it as sp-o1 without scoping? What ever shall we do?

And I had forgotten all about it. I am just the weak link in the chain right now with lack of equipment or means of accessing any. Yet, I struggle to achieve.

This is more like sp-S01

There’s a distinct bulb and a limbate volva. The partial veil looks weak and may disappear. The fact that the center of the cap is darker than the rest of the cap makes me think of praecox if the spores are subglobose and sp-S01 (of the russuloides group if not equal to __russuloides) if the spores are broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid.
