Observation 194503: Amanita ochrophylla (Cooke) Cleland
When: 2014-12-19
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Medium to large fungi found regularly in this area at this time of the year. Although notes I have say it is common I have only found this fungi in this area. It usually is accompanied by another in close by area, but seldom found growing together. The fungi is firm, remains in good condition and appears not to be affected by infestation th the extent of other Amanitas. I have loaded this species before but the “ochrophylla” (group) name has not been attached to the identification. Spore print is white. Usually displays double ring, bulbous base and shows dull apricot colour especially in the Cap top and lower half of Stipe and bulb base.

And thank you for the new year’s wishes. Mary and I would like to return the favor and wish you and Val a productive, rewarding, and safe 2015.

Very best,



Oh so sad. I, because it was not a new find and as you know large, I kept it for a couple of days and then destroyed it. Not to worry, I will be back in the same area in a few days, and hopefully there will be some still fruiting. If so I will send the specimen too you after drying same. (you know, I thought it was so well shaped I did think of drying it for archiving). I will email you either way whatever I find. Val & I wish you and family a Merry Xmas and a Safe and Happy New Year.

Hello, Ian. This is a great set of images.

I know these things can be very big, but is there any chance that you could send me some pie slice from of the cap and a top to bottom quarter or eighth of the stem?

Very best,
