Notes: This specimen was found (not by me) during an FPP foray with the NJMA. That’s why I can only report the features that remained intact by the time I picked it up from the ID table.
This is a tiny and dainty Amanita, measuring only 5 cm in height. Judging from the almost expanded cap, the specimen appears to have almost reached maturity. The cap has a diameter of only 2.7 cm, and the stipe is on average 3 mm thick. The cap is uniform in color, devoid of volval material (could have been washed away by the heavy rain yesterday), and has marginal striations. The small bulb is covered by sand/dirt; I didn’t attempt to clean it because the fruitbody is so fragile. I didn’t notice any volval material on the bulb.
The overall morphology seems to point toward section Validae.
The material is available for further scrutiny.

This material has been received and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium.
I couldn’t find a match for this one on your NJ/NY/PA website, so I thought you might be interested in it. I am drying the material as well as that of #141698 right now. I will ship them out to you by early next week.
I don’t recognize the mushroom, and I may never have seen it before.
I would certainly like to look at dried material.
