Collection location: near Castella, California, USA [Click for map]
Growing at the base of a large Douglas fir. Always a few scattered oaks, but I don’t remember seeing any within a couple hundred feet. This one was unusual because of the buff colored scales on the cap. It was growing right next to a small live oak and Susan had to hold it to the side for these pictures, so wasn’t available for reflector duty. I doubt it would have made a difference, though.
I had to use a flash to get the scales to show. These white Amanitas are really hard for me to photograph. Wish the light was better this afternoon. The underside reminded me of Stropharia ambigua, the way the veil hung down in lumpy strands.
