Notes: Here I am again with the strange wetland Siberian Amanita (see observation 82957 and observaiton 82959)
We collected it in the Yuganskiy nature reserve in a transitional bog (Sphagnum, Carex, Betula, …) – yet another location along the Ob river basin, ~ halfway between the previous finds (Konda river and Novosibirsk). The specimen is in poor condition and reeks of smoke yet I’m very happy with this find: we spent a week looking specifically for this species because the place and time seemed appropriate (I joined a team of nature reserve workers who were sent to this remote spot to fight a big forest fire).
Just an idea – since genetically this species is close to A. friabilis, maybe we should look at A. hyperborea http://www.amanitaceae.org/?Amanita%20hyperborea as a possible match? Apart from the obvious morphological similarities (“the friabilis-lika A.vaginata / vaginata-like A. friabilis” with more or less subglobose spores), the location where the type specimen was collected resembles the preferred habitat of this species a lot (that’s how I found it this time).I think it would be interesting to compare these specimens with the type collection of A. hyperborea.

It’s nice to see this post from you.
Good find. Good method of finding. Good hypothesis of identity. Etc.
