I thought that this one was changed to amerimuscaria as well, thanks for clearing that up.

When I go back to the spot I found these at ill make sure to get some good pictures of them in their habitat.

Actually, DNA work has shown Amanita muscaria var. persicina to be its own species, it is not a muscaria variant nor is it form of A. amerimuscaria.

You can really tell why this one is called the “peach colored fly agaric” by looking at the larger cap pictured in the third pic.

Beautiful rings around the base of the stipe on these, all of these growing under very small pine trees.

That is not red staining on the base, its clay.
