That’s the way it goes…especially when the collecting gets spectacular.

Thank you for suggesting A. magniradix and commenting on your familiarity with Meadowoods. It was a very productive foray for a change — it hasn’t been that good since 2006!
I wasn’t the collector of this material. Unfortunately, I didn’t examine the tip of the bulb to ascertain the completeness of its excavation. In retrospect, I wish I had preserved the material.

I have several times collected Amanita magniradix at Meadowoods.

Was the tip of the bulb missing?

My guess is that this is magniradix.

Very best,
