Observation 150007: Amanita phalloides (Vaill. ex Fr.) Link

When: 2013-10-27

Collection location: Frink Park, Seattle, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: jeff (theoneje)

No specimen available

This phalloides has been fruiting in abundance in Frink Park, Seattle, for at least one month when I first noticed it.

It is growing under big leaf maple, with pacific madrones, red alder, and cedar relatively nearby.

There is only 1 oak tree in the entire park, and it is not near the phalloides.

A survey of the park is available online, showing a map and different “zones” of the park based on history and tree species (look under section 4, forest plan): http://www.frinkpark.org/conceptplan/index.htm

This phalloides is growing in zone 1 of the park where no oaks occur. Best host guess is a hazelnut shrub, corylus cornuta.
