Observation 171336: Amanita amerirubescens Tulloss nom. prov.

On ground under balsam fir and maple with spruce, birch and pine nearby. All of these specimens were bug infested. All of the mature specimens (largest cap 12 cm across) were exposed to heavy rains four days ago and some of these were also exposed to a few hours of direct sun each day. The button has pink flesh colored cap, buff patches, white partial veil, red staining. The most intact specimen shows red on the cap fading to whitish at the margin, white partial veil, bulb. The older larger specimens are partially dehydrated by direct exposure to the sun and their caps have become shiny with more brownish tones.
