The stem tissue contains plentiful, narrowly clavate cells mixed with hyphae. The tissue shows a strong longitudinal (up and down in the original mushroom) orientation. This tissue is only found in the Amanitaceae. This specimen doesn’t belong in Limacella; hence, it’s an amanita.

Very best,


Thanks Ian,
