Who: L G Price (LG_Price)

No specimen available

This mushroom confuses me. I’ve seen it several times. It is small and dainty but keys out as A. flavoconia. This is not “Patches” which is a much larger more robust Amanita.

Small Amanita

Cap ~1 inch across

Yellow skirt-like ring

Yellow volva remnants or universal veil remnants in soil at base, not sure what causes the bright yellow flecks around the base.

yellow stalk, whitening and slightly widening at base

Growing in pines.

Gills white, free.

Spore print white. When I get around to measuring the spores, I’ll try putting it through R.Tullous’s Spore Identifier.
