I didn’t preserve this one. It was old and kinda beat up. This is a common fall species around here, and with the rain finally returning I think I’ll run across more of them. I’ll try to get some material for Jan B.

Actually, I did preserve and Amanita from another location that’s got a sorta ambiguous porphyria/citrina appearance. Posting soon.

Cool find. Jan Borovicka is looking for NA collections of this for study. Did you save it?
