The second image shows the truncate (squarely cut off) short gills beautifully.

Eric Smith and others have posted this recently. It seems to be fruiting quite a bit this year. I don’t recall it being so common in the past; and I don’t know if I have any experience with it. It clearly has a veil that is upward pointing at first. In someone’s pictures it had a volval “rolled sock” at the top of the bulb that is very reminiscent of the pantherina-like species. I would be interested in your collection so that I can compare it with Eric’s, etc. I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Validae and Vaginatae recently; but this should get a little attention since it is showing its face in many places this July.

Very best,

And have dried it. So if Dr. Tulloss or someone else wants it, I can send.

I was going to propose…

“Amanita species 34”, but my own collections of this type seem to lack a partial veil. The appendiculate material along the cap margin in this obs suggests a partail veil.

Interestingly, the report for Amanita species 34 (section Amanita… see link) mentions the presence of an annulus.
