I’m looking forward to your diagnoses!

Naomi and I looked at the spores briefly this afternoon.

All the spores we measured were too nearly globose for A. phalloides; so that is probably not what you have here. Also, we failed to find any two-spored basidia. So we can probably exclude A. bisporigera as a possibility.

Very best,


Thanks Geoff,

Of a graying nature, though not overall gray. though it seems moreso on the far side than the close side of the first photo.

so perhaps it’s not such a mystery? Still I have that (photographed) dry specimen for you! :)

Is the cap color in the second picture an artifact?

The second picture suggests A. phalloides. I wasn’t aware of its having been reported from North Carolina.

Very best,
