range has been in Washington and B.C. for nearly 20 years now. (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00047808.htm)
Vancouver, Washington had Amanita p. growing with chestnuts along the Columbia River. These were picked and eaten by SE Asians, who often eat Amanitas in their countries. As I recall, Janet Lindgren assisted with identification and treatment options. At least 2 died from ingestion, and 2 others required liver transplants.
The B.C. collections were also mycorrhizal with chestnut, which is non-native.
my question related to the likelihood of phalloides “going native” in Washington State. sounds like, just like in the east, it is still restricted to plantings.
thanks for the feedback.
From the Washington Native Plant Society, luckily they host a plant ID clinic the same day the PSMS hosts a mushroom ID clinic, at the CUH
this is not Quercus ilex (Holm oak, native to Europe).
Can you check, Tim? The thing to look for is the underside of the leaf (white for Q. ilex) or golden (for Golden chinquapin). Another feature is where the acorns are held. Q. ilex have cups holding the acorns; Golden chinquapin has more of a chestnut-like burr which holds (and protects) the seeds from things that like it eat the seeds (acorns).
I don’t think this could be Holm oak, as it is one of the trees which can support Tuber melanosporum (French Black truffle), and there has long-been an embargo on that species. The sole exception is if it was introduced into Washington by Charles LeFebre.
Maybe the UW Center for Urban Horticulture would know?
These are in the middle of a median in the middle of the street, in landscaped area in front of the UW Center for Urban Horticulture. Click on this location for more observations.
Not with live oak, Tim. So what is it associated with?
does not extend into Washington. In Oregon, it reached north to about Winston (near Roseburg).
have you seen it with live oak before?
