Observation 142007: Amanita sinicoflava Tulloss
When: 2013-08-05

Notes: Olive-brown to Yellow-brown cap, 54mm diameter x approximately 5mm thick. Cap has a small umbo and a decurved margin. Striations 10/27 approx. and non-appendiculate margin. Cap was slightly tacky when wet, no discernable odor, I didn’t it, and the surface had no bruising or staing reactions. Found in mixed woods; Acer, Quercus, and Betula, with some ferns and moses. The soil was mainly sandy-clay with good drainage except for a small bog nearby. The context was 3mm in the center and extended towards the margin in a triangular shape for only 12mm; it seemed as if the cap was mostly pilepellis and lamellae. The cap was orbicular, broadly convex with an umbo, glabrous with striations, and had no remnants of a UV.
The lamellae were white in mass with white faces, 5mm broad, free, and the edges were serrulate; no decurrent lines on the stipe. Lamellulae were plentiful, unevenly distributed, and were of four different lengths. The stipe was 11cm long, 9mm thick at midpoint, whitish with numerous appressed and upright black fibrils, and tapered towards the apex. Stipe contex white and hollow, but stuffed partially with white cottony material. THe universal veil was greyish, soft, and flimsy – it tore easily, and most of it remained in the soil. The sack was about 15mm high from the base to the top of the sack. That measurement is based on the portion of the UV that was attached to the stipe after I dug it up.
