no other trees nearby?

if so, your LA sighting adds a bit more credence to my sighting of another phalloides under Deodar cedar here in the BA, at the Mt. View Cemetery. There was a live oak in the vicinity, but the phalloides was growing directly under the cedar, and the oak was over 70’ away, paced off.
