Observation 1777: Amanita pseudobreckonii N. Siegel & C.F. Schwarz nom. prov.

When: 2006-12-31

Collection location: Salt Point State Park, Sonoma Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Darvin DeShazer (darv)

No specimen available

Notes:
This unusual species has a double annulus that sticks to the top of the volva (basal annulus). Sometimes it leaves scattered reminants on the stipe, but never a ring. Dr. Thiers described both parts of the annulus as derived from the universal veil tissue. These photographs show that sequence as it happens.
