Observation 222858: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2015-11-13

Notes: Under pine… not sure which type, maybe Jack Pine.

Specimen is old and faded, but in good condition. Probably just a faded sinicoflava, but seems kinda interesting. So I’m dehydrating it. Volva is distinctly gray. I think the short gills are mainly collapsed onto/adhered to the long gills.

I looked at the images first and read your notes second. I agree, the that the graying volva and the graying gills are very much what one expects in sinicoflava.

Very best,
