Observation 210702: Amanita muscaria var. guessowii Veselý
When: 2015-07-19
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Photos were taken of three different specimens in a heavily wooded, coniferous forest. There was very little undergrowth, it is fairly moist in this area, and the ground is mostly covered in moss and pine needles.

The smallest of three observed was very bright yellow. The larger specimens were a slightly duller yellow. All three appear similar, just at slightly different stages of growth. I didn’t turn any over to look at the gills as I would like to watch them progress over time.
