obviously a reddening amanita (section Validae) of some kind…

species ID maybe not so obvious.

cap color more in line with amerirubescens; bulb NOT cracked and abruptly bulbous like found in brunnescens. gray veil doesn’t fit amerirubescens neatly (altho it IS listed for the European form!)…but i have seen gray veils on western amanitas that “shouldn’t” be there, either. environmentally caused veil color, or perhaps individual variation?

and normally we give the ID weight to the collector. since Dan saw many other older mushrooms in the area, not photographed, perhaps this is just a somewhat out of the ordinary amerirubescens??

I spent all of about 10 seconds with this mushroom, so I can’t offer any details not apparent in the photo. Dimitar also saw this mushroom. It was growing just off the lake view trail where the path crosses over a tiny stream. There is a black plastic culvert there. Maybe he looked at it a little more closely than I did. I remember there were a number of reddening amanitas growing there, but this was the only one handsome enough to photograph.

I’m with Walt…NOT brunnescens.

Is very common and I have seen hundreds of both color forms. This is neither. As for it being one of the American species all lumped under A. rubescens, maybe.
There is one of these which has gray warts. Rod help!

Mycowalt…

This species is described as having white, grayish, or tan warts.

Gorgeous

The warts are gray… Not a good fit.
