I have already read about it. Thank you :)

Can you tell me if this obs. http://mushroomobserver.org/149400?q=1aJl9 is still a Rubescens?

None of those ecological constraints…

would eliminate A. lactea. There are probably other possibilities that don’t have names or don’t come to mind late at night.


Very best,

We are almost at sea level. Trees nearby were mainly oaks and maybe some pines not so far.

The short gills all appear to be squarely cut off, …

which is typical of both sections Vaginatae and Amidella.


The last picture seems to show a sac left in the ground.

If that is the case, then (because of a lack of brick=colored staining) I think you probably have a species of section Vaginatae. All of them in the Northern Hemisphere (and almost all in the Southern Hemisphere) lack a ring as a matter of course.

At what altitude did you observer this material?

Can you give any clues about the trees nearby.

Amanita lactea would be a possibility. Spores would be very useful in finding if this were the case.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

Where is the ring?
