When it comes to Amanita, it is usually important to dig up the base of the mushroom’s stem carefully for purposes of identification. In this case one might not get too much closer to an ID than Igor has taken us if a shot of the stem base were added. However, a shot of the stem base might give us a closer view of the stem surface. And this closer view might have helped to decide between Amanita amerifulva and A. daimonioctantes.



Very best,

Rod Tulloss
