Observation 163300: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2014-04-11

Notes: Found this specimen just emerging through soil surface. I decided to note GPS (E 152.degrees 57’689’ S30.degree47’704’)and check on my way home. When I did check the stipe had grown a couple of cm’s in 5hrs. I again decided to leave the specimen insitu, and return again the next day. The next day (about midday), the stipe appeared to be fully grown, and the pileus was fully open. This was such a crisp specimen and I finally removed it for drying. There was a volva but no veil.
The stipe did not appear to have any markings. The specimen is available for MO member who would like the specimen.

I’m pretty sure this is a new species. The photos are gorgeous.

You asked me to say if I would be interested in your new specimens.

It’s like the last lines of Joyce’s Ulysses: Yes he said yes he said yes he said yes.

Instant classic!
