At the point in the development of A. velatipes corresponding to the most open can (showing uncovered lamellae), the entire partial veil would be below the cap and arranged in a funnel-like form on the stem and probably not yet beginning to separate from the cap margin or barely doing so.

Because of the absence of a partial veil and a colored cap and the form of the volva, this might be a species of section Amanita in which the cap margin has not yet developed striations because of its immaturity.

I see there is no herbarium specimen. If there were one, at this point, I would ask to study it. There is a sentence in the conditional form (as Dr. Who noted on a program yesterday on the BBC America channel).

Very best,


These appear…
