a white angel with the same apparent type of deposit along the cap margin. Unfortunately, my camera setting had been unintentionally changed, resulting in my snapping a bunch of blurry photos. But a few showing what appears to be PV material sticking to the gills just before they meet the cap margin did come out. Very similar to what is seen here in this post. I’ll post something later tonight.

“Amanita virosa” is a European name that had been applied to the American Destroying Angels up until molecular research indicated that a new species name was required; the name “Amanita bisporigera” was applied. Currently, the white angels are being researched, and several new species names addressing the diversity among these types is anticipated.
