Notes: Large fruitbodies in a planted oak (Quercus robur) grove of the Central Siberian Botanical Gardens. The species is currently not listed among Western Siberian Amanitas, so it might be the first observation location in our region. I’ve seen this fungus there a year before in 2008, but took no in situ images.

It is very nice to have a contribution of an Amanita from western Siberia. I happen to be a person who likes formal (not in situ) diagnostic photographs of amanitas. And so I was very pleased to see a photograph against a simple gray background. Very nice. I would make one suggestion with regard to such photos. If you have access to aluminum foil (say, for cooking purposes), and two rectanges of cardboard, you could wrap the cardboard with the aluminum foil and make a 2-page book that could be placed below the camera position to reflect light into the bottom of the mushroom’s cap so as to eliminate the dark shadow in that area and reveal more detail of the top of the stem and of the gills. Making several of these little reflector-books will give you a lot of flexibility in reducing or eliminating shadows and revealing more of your mushrooms.
