This material has been accessioned to Rod’s herbarium.

For a change, I think I have a name for this one….

Amanita “sp-21.” I have collected it a couple of times in northern New Jersey, but rather long ago, and there is no taxon page for it on the WAO website; however, there is a tiny bit of information here:


If the link doesn’t deliver you to the right place on the page, search for the text “species 21”.

Since you have good photos and some measurements, I would very much like to examine dried material of your mushroom.

This is a surprise.

Very best,
