Observation 26566: Amanita Pers.
When: 2009-10-12
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This looks a lot like A. magninadix but the stem not as long and has a bend in it others i have found of A Magninadix have had a long stem that is buried. This was not as deep and the stem seems thicker.

spore print in progress

I place them in a glucose solution and it keeps them fresh for a while and they go though further development I’m in the process of a spore print as I type.

By any chance…

Eddee,

Did you happen to get the cap to open and give a spore print before you dried it?

The fact that there seem to be moderately well-formed warts away from the center of the cap would seem to indicate “not longipes.” But without mature spores (etc.), I can’ make a confident statement about the species.
