Observation 220345: Amanita persicina (Dav. T. Jenkins) Tulloss & Geml
When: 2015-10-23
(39.8497° -74.5103° )

Notes: > A scattered group of six fruiting bodies growing on the north side of Gates Road (this small section of BBSF is detached from the rest of the 35+K acre state forest)
> Habitat: observed pitch pine, Atlantic white cedar, maples, sassafras, and another deciduous tree (working on its identity) in the immediate vicinity
> None of the basidiomes, even the youngest ones, had even a trace of partial veil on them or on the ground
> Odor of old potatoes in older specimens (decomposition?)
> According to http://www.amanitaceae.org/?Amanita%20persicina, the range of this species extends as far as NW New Jersey. To my knowledge this is the northernmost collection on MO; the first collection of A. persicina I made in the NJ Pine Barrens a few years back was near Atsion Lake in Wharton State Forest, which is to the south of the location in this obs
> The fbs dropped spores
