I have never observed a young specimen. Three similar “greyish Amanita” observations have been made so far in RPPN Cristalino, the last one very likely a different species and being much darker.


Your Chilean Fungi website http://www.ffungi.org/#!galeria/c4y5 is awesome!

Many thanks, Rod, for your opinion on this observation! It is much appreciated!

I think that it is likely that this species is an Amanita because…

the gill edges are decorated (indicating that they may have developed in close proximity to the stipe separated only by gill edge cells or such cells and a floccose layer of universal veil). The gray ring around the stem base suggests a remainder of a limbus internus originally wedged between the stipe base, the top of the bulb, and the outer part of the developing lamellae.


Darker when smaller?

Did you see any smaller specimens? Were they darker?

Oh, boy. This is a nice one.

Unfortunately, MO is not displaying the images when I click on the thumbnails.

I imagine that they will be sorted out soon.

Very best,
