I’m afraid that the stipe base may have been a very important element for ID from a photo.

The cap margin (except for wrinkles from drying) is smooth. This suggest that the spores may be amyloid. If this is true. The species is certainly not in sect. Amidella and would be very unusual in sect. Lepidella.

The cap’s pigment is organized so that it appears there are fine, radially-oriented hairs embedded in the cap’s surface. This character can be seen in both sect. Phalloideae and sect. Validae. Since the volva on the cap appears to be friable (rather than a membranous patch), the highest probability would be in sect. Validae.

Very best,


Easily peeled off volva

Hi Rod,

Yes, the volva was easily peeled off. Any suggestions for the species name?


It looks to me as though there was a rooting bulb at the base of the stem what was cut…

away or was broken off during collecting.

Is this the case?

Very best,
