Observation 170991: Amanita flavorubens (Berk. & Mont.) Sacc.
When: 2014-07-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Collected in an area where A. flavoconia is a dominant summer species. I could find no obvious rubescence in these specimens. Interior stipe base of the large one exhibited a very slight darkening. This darkening increased slightly as the cut mushroom sat inside my house for 20 hours.

Spore measurements approximately 7-11 × 5.5-7.5, and spore quotient up to 1.8, both wrong for flavoconia, but fit flavorubens. Stipe color rules out elongata.
