This park is choke-full of them.

This is the most common Amanita around here, since the pine-oak barrens are predominant landscape in this part of the state.

My guess is that they are all the same taxon.

The bulb and “rolled sock” of volva, the thick-fleshed cap (limited marginal striations, if any),and the partial veil being pulled up the stem (funnel-shaped at first) suggest A. velatipes or something very similar.

Very best,


I wonder if the third specimen is the same species (two bottom photos).

Grow on sandy soils in pine-oak barrens.
