The way the skin of the cap is breaking up around the cap edge…

reminds me of an east Asian species of the white destroying angel group (Amanita rimosa).


As has previously been observed over more than a Century with plants,fungi, alligators, etc., a number of organisms of eastern North America have sister taxa in eastern Asia.

I wonder if that could be going on here. It would be very interesting to see if DNA could be extracted from your dried material. Would you be willing to share some well-dried material of this species?

Very best,


found no bulb

I was careful as possible but whatever the base consisted of was small and delicate.

This could be a species of the Phalloideae.

Was the stem base a bulb?

Very best,
