Our european panther can be darker, but the cap colour is within the ordinary variation, so this one looks close enough.
I guess time will tell if they really are the same.

your panthers are a lot darker than ours, Irene!

but we also do seem to have pantherinoides here in Central CA…two collections have been documented for the Pt. Reyes Mycoblitz’. Here’s a link to one of the collections, now deposited at UC Berkeley.

but strong affinity with Amanita pantherina, maybe pantherinoides?
