I looked for it over the weekend and could not see it on Saturdays walk. Some of them got sent off for DNA, hopefully we can do this one when we find it again.

in other words …

rather “minute?”

nice find, John. Too bad you didn’t save it. It would’ve been nice to throw this one onto the DNA pile.

the caps were about an inch across on average.

could sp. 34 and minutula be synonyms?

they both describe small exannulate amanitas in section Amanita with yellowish to sl. orangish caps with tuberculate striate margins and rather indistinct volval remnants on the stipe base.

the spores seem to be fairly similar in size between the two collections. not as many measured in Quebec, though, and no Q value given! :)

any other fruit body details?

Looks quite similar…

to what I’ve been calling “species 34.” The ones in my collections are all small, with cap diameters mostly under 2 inches. I have never observed any evidence of a partial veil on my (proposed) species 34 collections. Mostly with oak, although one spot I know is a lawn with spruce (no oak).

We need Rod to weigh in :-)

I was thinking something close to sp34
but it looks a little different
I have not idea on which it may be
It was under pin oak

Amanita sp-??

This one doesn’t have a ring or a collar on the bulb.
