Observation 19701: Amanita pantherina group

When: 2009-03-19

Collection location: Marble Mountain Ranch, Siskiyou Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: John Harlan (harlanx6)

No specimen available

Notes:
These were in a grassy area in the root zone of the only Catalpa tree on the ranch. In this area, the A. pantherina are spring mushrooms(Mar-May)and the very similar A.gemmata are fall mushrooms (Nov-Dec). Both are common with a long fruiting season. They are so similar in structure that color is the only way I can distinguish between them. A. pantherina being tan (spring) and A. gemmata being yellow (autumn). I don’t have a microscope.
