Observation 188736: Amanita pantherina (DC.) Krombh.

When: 2014-11-16

Collection location: SE 76th and Division, Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

This is the same fungus I observed several days ago. Since then the temperature has frozen almost every night, and now it is just frigid. These are frozen in place: an unusual occurence.

These were found growing under beech trees, a non-native species here. Fungus may be Amanita pantherina.


Barely showing.
Slightly above ground level.
Nearly mature specimens, even though frozen. Have the dark brown coloration of A. pantherina.
