Observation 163320: Amanita vernicoccora Bojantchev & R.M. Davis

When: 2014-04-12

Collection location: Auburn, California, USA [Click for map]


Who: frankdu99

No specimen available

Cap 5" wide. Growing close to base of Strawberry tree (Ericaceae), on a lot in town.

This mushroom lacked the obvious skirt-like partial veil that I have observed and appeared prominent on other fresh specimens that I believed to be of this species; which gives me hesitation about this i.d. To me the wide diameter rim of the volva was the most striking character of this specimen.
