That makes a great deal of sense to me, Penny.

Very best,


I do not have any Melzer’s reagent

I also did not collect samples as I was on National Park property and the trail was busy with Father’s Day hikers. I definitively said “absolutely not” when a child stopped to watch me take the photos and asked if I planned to eat the mushrooms.

Best wishes, Penny
Those striations look pretty robust.

Maybe frostiana might be considered as a possibility.

Do you have Melzer’s Reagent, Penny?

Very best,

I had the same problem trying to extract an Amanita this afternoon.

We have been having afternoon showers for several days. Everything very moist. Sorry no stipe base. Penny

I wonder if those lines along the cap margin…

are true striations or merely a development related to fluctuations in moisture content. Looks like a species from the flavoconia group to me, except… those lines. Seeing an entire stipe base would be helpful.
