Observation 185986: Amanita phalloides (Vaill. ex Fr.) Link

I learned of this patch of introduced Amanita phalloides from members of the Rochester Area Mycological Association. The location is an old park with many mature, exotic trees. In the near vicinity of this specimen were white pines, spruces, paperbark maples, and red oaks, among others. The site is in a shaded grassy area on the east side of Zoo Road, near a gate that is locked when the park closes at dusk each night. A specimen has been deposited in the Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium (CUP).
