Observation 48771: Amanita Pers.
When: 2010-07-19
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Tiny Amanita species, growing under oak. Note the base of this one, I was impressed at how large the base was for such a small little guy. I have not seen anything like this before so am rather excited to find out what species this is.

Identification…

With the yellowing syndrome, spores may become stunted or malformed. I’m not sure if it would be possible to get a solid ID from the material. Amanita longipes usually has a dog-legged bulb alright, but not so much thicker than the rest of the stem; and the top of the bulb is not usually decorated with rings of volval material.

I checked out your observation of A. longipes and I have to agree this one sure looks the same, it had the “yellowing disease” :)

it’s a lepidella…
