the name is not valid. Even Rod’s website, the only place I saw this specific being used, cites it as a provisional name.

If it has been published, please cite the publication. I am not aware of any.

Yes, this a a very beautiful and distinctive amanita, and perhaps it really does deserve its own specific, but we need to be patient and wait for official publication before using it. This is not a brand new to science amanita, and we already have a widely recognized placeholder name.

Amanita muscaria var. persicina is deprecated correct?

So the proper name is Amanita persicina correct?

What part of NC did you visit?

Have you ever been to Maggie valley?

I agree with you about persicina, such a beautiful mushroom, what type of trees did you find yours under?

I have read it can be found under oak but have never seen this before, only under conifers.

perscicina wins my personal award for most beautiful muscaria species!

After leaving the red one in a paper bag overnight to let it grow some more it definitely is Amanita muscaria var. persicina, all the red is gone now, just beautiful peach colors left.

Guess it was wishful thinking, I really want to find amerimuscaria down here, persicina is so abundant at the moment one could literally go pick 30 pounds in a few hours, and that is no joke.
