Collection location: Big Thicket, Hardin Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]
Found in the Turkey Creek Unit of the Big Thicket National Preserve.
Caps up to 8.2 cm across, texture very thin and soft, almost like tissue paper.
Thin annulus also fragile.
Spore print white and spores amyloid.
Spores ~ 6.9-9.1 X 5.2-6.4 microns, ellipsoid.
Q(range) = 1.30-1.56. Q(ave) = 1.39.
These were strange as they looked and felt more like a Lepiota except for the amyloid spores.

is striking and comes through clearly in your photographs.
I would be very interested to know if this is one of the rubescent taxa that we have already seen (in a more delicate fruiting body) or something new.
about the reddish coloring…no red clay in that area.
They were definitely atypical of any Amanitas I was finding in the area.
that the felsh has bruised and the reddish colors are not from red clay or some other pigmented soil
It looks like the bottom of the partial veil and the warts on the cap are both white. This eliminates one of rubescent taxa that is sometimes white and seems to consistently have yellow in those two parts of the fruiting body.
