When: 2014-09-14

Collection location: Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

This one looks like classic bisporigera to me. At first I thought the long limb atop the volva was unusual. But reading the description for bisporigera on the Amanita Studies website, I see this trait is common.

Mixed hardwoods, beech, birch, Tulip Poplar, some oak. Hemlock not far away.
