If you’d like, one of us in Roosevelt could do the spore measurement.

Very best,


This is going to be one of the species that is more restricted to the Atlantic…

and/or Gulf Coast coastal plains. (I.e., not species that common in uplands such as ravenelii or rhopalopus or “magniradix”) There are quite a few possibilities. The bulb is a short for Amanita subsolitaria. The spores should be checked as a first step. I would expect that the average length/width ratio will be close to (if not exceeding) 2.0.

Very best,
