Observation 24527: Amanita Pers.

When: 2009-08-18

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

Who: Dave in NE PA

No specimen available

This one fell apart once I got it home (old and buggy). Looks a bit like a few of the others with marginate basal bulb that I’ve run across this summer (at least some of which are possibly pantherina types). This one is interesting on account of the ring which appears very low on the stalk. I should be able to coax a few spores out of the mature cap. Hopefully, I’ll add spore pic later.

This one was not very large; about 3 or 4 inches tall and maybe 2.5 inched for cap diameter.

You might consider A. velatipes…if this is a big ’un.
