Observation 141861: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2013-08-04
(40.8527° 74.83° )
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Four specimens growing on a lawn under an old beech tree.

The caps were gray, with a darker umbo in mature specimens. The volva was very friable and crumbled away together with the soil clumps. The older fruitbodies with expanded caps were in great shape, but when I came back to collect them in the afternoon (following an NJMA foray at Stephens State Park), the sun and low humidity had already “fried” the caps.

Older specimen: 12.5 cm tall; expanded cap = ~4.5 cm wide; stipe = 3 mm wide at apex, 7 mm wide at base.

Younger Specimen: 11.5 cm tall; unexpanded cap = ~4 cm wide; stipe = 8×6 mm wide at apex; 9×7 mm wide at base.

Rod, I am sending these to you as well.
