Volva not flocculent…

Amanita tephrea has a flocculent volva on the pileus extremely similar to that of A. chlorinosma. The “gray” of the volva in A. tephrea is pallid and with a hint of light beige. I had the pleasure of reviewing the material that Bas called “tephrea” in the Univ. Tenn. Knoxville herbarium and then seeing the species live in the field within hours in Grt. Smok. Mtns. Nat. Pk.! Later, I found it on a friend’s property in New Jersey. Images are on the Amanita Studies site.

Very best,
