Amanita cokeri is a rather rare species.

Also, it doesn’t have warts the are distinctly divided into upper and lower layers.

Amanita buttons can sometimes be made to expand by setting them upright in a cup and wrapping the base with moist paper towels (not running in water) and leaving the combination covered overnight (for example).

If you could have gotten to see the partial veil, that would have helped you out because, while many species of Amanita section Lepidella have a weakly formed (collapsing) skirt on the stem and other just have fluffiness, A. cokeri and the similar A. subcokeri have a distinctly membranous this skirt or even a pair of such skirts joined at the outer edges.



Very best,

Rod Tulloss
