Observation 172299: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2014-08-02
(43.9955° 10.9153° 547m)

Notes: Amanita in section Vaginatae.
I have 1 dried specimen but unfortunately I made very awful photographs for this collection.
This collection bears macroscopic characteristics similar to observations: 172163, 171619, 171624.
Such three observations below come from the same patches.
While this observaion was growing in the middle of a wood of young Quercus cerri/Quercus ilex 410,62 m distant from the other three said observations.
It is smaller but mature than other collected specimens.
Pileus siglthly umbonate even the photographs may not show it

This material has been received and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled if for DNA sequencing.

This Vaginatae has grey, umbonate, pileus (that’s awfully not viewable in the photograph) and a stem that is white and smooth. Volva remains at the base are white, with no particular warts or colored spots which cannot be explained by the soil, and its quite adherent to the stem and if not removed with the whole mushroom, some spare parts of the volva usually remain attached to the stem while if the basement remains buried it can last for days, it’s quite resistant in other words, but fragile.
Observation 171619 is very similar and can give you a better Idea of the specimen and the striations on the cap, 171619 way a little more grey, but it was highly more hydrated as only the cap was coming out from the moss, in this observation (172299) specimen was in an harder soil with no moss and very less humidity around. As said in the description also it is a Quercus cerri/Quercus ilex wood.And I can assure with a few margin of error that in this case is Q. cerri the host plant.

since your photos are admittedly not very good, can you describe what this amanita looked like? Cap color, shape of volva at base, relative length of striations on cap?

With oak exclusively, or in a mixed forest?
