Thanks Rod,

I’ll have to go back after the next rain and see if I can find more. I don’t really remember a smell, but I don’t think I really got in there and got a good sniff. The annulus looked very unusual, and I do think it had two layers, but I don’t want to say for certain. This area seemed to be fruiting at least a couple of these Amanitas, so hopefully there will be more fruits in better condition soon. Thanks for your help!


It looks like it has a membranous annulus that is connected to the stipe by…

fibers, which could matche cokeri or subcokeri given the supersized recurving scales on the bulb (especially). The pinkish staining on the bulb points ot subcokeri. Did/does this critter have a smell?

I’m looking into the peephole created by the slugs to see if there are two layers to the annulus (two skirts joined at their outer edges), but I can’t be sure. Can you see this feature?

Very best,
