Observation 221107: Amanita muscaria var. persicina Dav.T. Jenkins

When: 2015-10-29

Collection location: 4479 Province Line Rd., Princeton, New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: Athena (Apfelmusser)

No specimen available

They were found about 5 yards from a semi-busy road, on the edge of someone’s property. They were mostly under pine trees, but there were also some maples in the mix. The natural litter debris was about 3 inches deep. Just rained a lot yesterday, perhaps explaining the washed out colors on the older specimens. One specimen was collected and taken home.


This cap was planar and roughly a hand span across and tall.
Roughly ring shape cluster between pines
Largest specimen, strangely washed out colour.
A young specimen with the gills still covered.
Some of the mushrooms seem to have been knocked around, this one’s stem shape caught my eye. It also provides a good gill cross section.
" one day i’ll grow up to be like that!"
This young one was almost spherical!
