Observation 23125: Amanita albocreata (G.F. Atk.) E.-J. Gilbert

When: 2009-07-11

Collection location: Wyoming Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave in NE PA

Specimen available

Except for being rather viscid caps (no previous rainfall for over one full day), these seem to match well with A. albocreata. Found growing singly, but within 10 square yard area nearby my favorite chanterelle patch… an area nearby a fast moving stream with runnoff channels seperating the small “island” from the main forest. Soil rocky due to erosion. Trees are mostly small birch and small sycamore, with a few very small hemlock and one small White Pine. Spores are subglobose to ellipsoid.
