Use separate observations for different species and please use the date the picture was taken and not the date you post it. You can edit previous observations.

that C. molybdites has never been found in Oregon or further north. It is known from California. The range may eventually spread northward, but so far has not.

Amanita phalloides was once unknown from Oregon also. Were that it remained so. Seems to be spreading with chestnut in Washington, and maybe with other host trees now.

of Amanita, agreed, Byrain. Rakeem needs to edit the photos (click just above the photos), click on the last photo here, and delete it. I agree it would make a nice obs. by itself. It is not Chlorophyllum. Perhaps Amanita rubescens? Need to see the base clearer. Perhaps a separate photo, if Rakeem is still in the same area.

Are an Amanita, can you move them to a new observation so that this is not a mixed collection?
