I’ll let you know what we find. The spores are rather distinctive….

Very best,

In the way of actual data, I haven’t been able to collect much. (I see a microscope in my near future, but for now I have to get by without one.) This species, whatever it is, is quite common around here and has fruited repeatedly over the course of the summer. I’ll send you a fresh specimen as soon as I get my hands on one.

Amanita pubescens sensu Coker is an interesting suggestion.

This species has been found in Louisiana in the past. Microscopic and molecular work would be worth the effort on this material.

Logan, what data have you been able to collect from the dried material?

Very best,

has a persistent annulus on the stem that, for a long time after separating from the gills and cap has an elevated edge (is somewhat funnel-shaped). This species does not seem to have a persistent annulus.

Very best,
