…are observations of A. amerimuscaria or closely-related taxa in the general geographic area.

All are much larger mushrooms — much larger — and are found in meadow near trees or at the fringe of woods. One type is found near aspen, retains a convex cap in age, and is yellow-orange, and the other is found near red pine and aspen, develops a flat cap in age, and is peach fading to white.

Are these three morphologies seriously the same exact species? My suspicion is that they are three taxa, two of them closely related and all of them in Amanita sect. Amanita, with the convex aspen-loving one perhaps the closest to the concept of A. amerimuscaria.
