Observation 179333: Amanita canescens Dav. T. Jenkins

When: 2014-09-16

Collection location: Roberts Property, Cumberland Co., Tennessee, USA [Click for map]

Who: Steve Roberts (Mushroom World)

No specimen available

The first two photos, are of two separate specimens in different stages of development, growing very close to the larger cluster of 4 specimens. Photos of that larger cluster were taken 2 days apart to catch different stages of development. I’m not sure if the first two photos of the singletons are the same species as the cluster of 4.

for this and all your extensive work on Amanitas AND your thoughtful, kind and detailed responses to questions from those of us looking for more and more answers

I think that there are two different taxa here.

With the exception of the first two photographs, I concur that the cluster is probably A. canescens.

The first two are something else.

Very best,


for some reason, the pictures didn’t want to load
