There are red-brown stains on the cap surface and on the stem..

The cap color is yellow, there is universal veil on cap and stem that has powdery texture and is yellow. The stem has a white skirt. The gills are white with the typical powdery-looking edge of amanitas that develop in a solid mass and have to break the gills away from the partial veil in order to expand. There is red-brown bruising on the cap surface and in spots on the surfaces of the two stipes. Unfortunately, there is some glare of white surfaces. Unfortunately, the caps have sustained rather significant damage. Unfortunately, we cannot see the stipes’ bases in the ground.

Putting all this together, it seems as though Amanita flavorubens is a possibility.


Skirt-like annulus and irregular warts or patches leans toward flavoconia, correct Daniel?
