Observation 210154: Amanita Pers.
When: 2015-07-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in a yard that also hosted russulas and yellow-orange-red amanitas with warts. Only apparent tree is a nearby birch in the yard. Strange, almost chemical odor that is familiar but which I cannot put my finger on. I have some suspicion that this may be a destroying angel variety. No success obtaining spore prints, specimens collected usually still have a veil covering the gills.

In the close-up images, the younger cap has a striate cap margin.

If this is not due to drying…that is, if all young caps have a striate margin, then this isn’t a destroying angel. If the striate margin in an accident or caused by environmental factors, then the material could be a destroying angel. See also, my previous comment.


It’s necessary to know about the base of the stem and whatever part…
