Observation 143049: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2013-08-17

Notes: This is probably a younger version of the mushroom in Obs. #143048. It was found in the same section of the woods, but not in the immediate vicinity of #143048. A single specimen growing in mixed broadleaf woods consisting of oak, hickory, maple and beech.

The fruitbody is 11.5 cm tall.
The unexpanded, convex cap is 3.7 cm in diameter; striations are 8 mm long.
The stipe taper toward both the apex and the base; it’s 7 mm in diameter at its widest section.

The material is saved for R.E.T.

I came hoping to collect some edibles, but alas very few were found and I left Washington Crossing with a “contraband” of poisonous fungi instead. Indeed, Vaginatae ruled supreme today, and, unlike the other mushrooms I encountered in the park today, these fragile critters were surprisingly en pleine forme. I only found what looked like an old A. crenulata under white pines as the sole representative from the other sections.

Thank you again, Igor.

You seem to have had an interesting day for Vaginatae.

Very best,
