Amanita velatipes…

would have an annulus attached to the stem much farther down the stem; and when the mushroom was this far along in expansion, the annulus of of A. velatipes would have a funnel-like shape…with the cap margin pulling up the outer rim of the skirt.

The name “velatipes” derived from the mistaken notion that the annulus was produced the stem being peeled upward by the cap edge…or so I have heard…I just can’t remember where tonight.

Very best,

R.

At first I thought it was a small yellow fly agaric with its warts washed away by recent downpours. Then, when I saw the volva, I thought maybe some kind of Caesar mushroom, but the rooting bulb is atypical for both.

Could be in sect. Amanita?
