Observation 27272: Amanita persicina (Dav. T. Jenkins) Tulloss & Geml
When: 2009-10-24
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Just looking for some clarity on what Amanita species this might be. Thanks.

Habitat:
This mushroom was found in Dekalb county, GA, USA, along the deciduous/pine tree line border of a public park. It was growing up through layers of pine needles on the ground.

Gills:
White, free, and crowded gills.

Stem:
About 2 inches in length, 1.5 cm in diameter, yellowish white to a rusty brown in color. Inside the stipe is solid and meaty, but not necessarily fibrous.

Cap:
3.5 inches in diameter, orange in the middle and yellowing boldy toward the cap edge. White warts cover the top of the cap. Cap shape is the very definition of “plain”. (Been reading up on my myco terms!)

Spore print color:
Processing now….

Bruising:
No bruising at all.

Other information:
No readily identified scent. Even lacks the “standard” mushroom smell.

That is an atypical specimen of Amanita persicina nom. prov.
