I took more pictures of two more specimens of the mushroom today. Larger cap is an orange color like cantelope; filmy veil is yellowish. Smaller specimen is all yellow.

Herbert’s suggestions of Amanita persicina seems reasonable to me. Did you check the link Herbert provided to the www.amanitaceae.org (WAO) website?

Very best,

Larger cap strikes me in the field as orange-tan color like cantelope on the surface (seems pinkish in th ephoto); yellow under the surface. Filmy veil is yellowish. Smaller specimen is all yellow.

I read your description of the yellow being a fixed feature of the upper cap and not…

a staining reaction. How would you described (EDITED TEXT) the surface color of the cap? In the older specimen (looks like the cap has dried and cracked) the cap skin seems brownish. This time I think I detect a color, but I may be prejudiced, and I’d like to know how you would characterize the color of the cap’s skin.

Very best,

Rod

The lower images shows that the original color of the universal veil was yellow.
