In agreement with David on the sectional placement.

I think that is a partial veil on the upper stem.

Very best,


Thank you, sir!

I can only say I’m starting to get a clue about these Amanita.
Hopefully by the end of the season I’ll have a better handle on them.

Another tricky one, Geoff.

I think the material deposited on the upper stipe may be the remnants of a partial veil (ring). One reason for this suspicion is that the color of this Amanita brings section Caesareae to my mind.
