Observation 26483: Amanita Pers.
When: 2009-10-09
Who: NeoSporen
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found this Amanita under a western hemlock, growing from forest debris. It was about 6" tall, had no odor, veil was still partially attached to stipe, and after about an hour, there was some pinkish bruising on the stipe and cap. Any help would be great. I was told to post here by “Shroomery” T.I. Alan Rockefeller, and have Rod Tulloss look at this specimen.

Recognized by sight: I’m tempted to suggest Amanita breckonii because of the brownish color showing in the center of an otherwise pallid cap, the very plentiful material of the internal limb of the volva on the lower stipe, and the short gills that
might be truncate. However, I don’t know a certain means of determining that species without a dried specimen. Perhaps, “Amanita sp. (section Amanita)” would not be too wild a guess. Isn’t there a “q” in the place name? R.

Snoqualmie Pass, WA. I’ll bet the w was a close miss.

That’s why I thought it might be A. breckonii.

..those concentric rings remind me of a muscaroid taxon.
