Observation 169681: Amanita chlorinosma (Peck) Lloyd
When: 2014-07-13
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This button was found in rich rocky woods near Observation #169680. Nearest woody plants were Chestnut Oak, Red Maple, Mountain Laurel. Smell clean chlorine. The cut button detail suggests that the annulus location is, in fact, the apical option seen in Observation #169680?

Your package has arrived. It will take some time to get this into our schedule for sampling and then get DNA. I will report when we have information.

Very best,

In my experience, Amanita chlorinosma doesn’t have a deeply rooting bulb (which you have beautifully extracted as shown in your photographs).

I would suggest three possibilities:

Amanita rhopalopus

Amanita magniradix

and (perhaps less likely)

Amanita longipes

Descriptions of these species can be found here:

Very best,

Rod
