There are a couple of taxa going under the name rubescens in Europe.

On this specimen you can see the red wine staining…especially on the lower stipe. There is a good probability that this is one of the critters that has been long called “Amanita rubescens.”

Do you ever dry material for scientific study?

I’ve been working on the Amanitaceae for more then 36 years and would be very interested in obtaining dried material of species of Amanita and Limacella. What I can offer in exchange is information on the family and the taxa within it.

Very best,

Consensus seems to say that this might be an Amanita Rubescens. This is possible. Sadly, at the time, I did not manage to take any further photographs and didn’t check bruising etc.
