Observation 45513: Amanita novinupta Tulloss & J. Lindgr.
When: 2010-05-16
No herbarium specimen

Notes: no herbarium specimen…too buggy when sliced. fruit body pulled out of ground and left under its oak by another person yesterday. prior handling may explain its apparently appendiculate margin.

Recognized by sight: a significantly smaller version of this species consistantly fruits here. I call it Amanita novinupta variety “huckleberriensis”!

I think we would benefit from more of these “documentary” obses.

note friable universal veil that covers the entire mushroom and is readily removed by mechanical means. also note red staining on fruit body caused by maggot activity. as an aside, also note possible “red maggot” in sectioned fruit body (must enlarge to see)!
