Observation 495: Amanita “pseudobreckonii”
When: 2004-11-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The cap color was nearly identical to that of A. velosa. However, the volva is wrong as is the season. Also there were no clear striations. It was growing under a large shrub that I think was a wax murtle over the spring that we’ve always called the Frog Pond.

After seeing http://mushroomobserver.org/1777 I concluded that A. breckonii is probably the correct name.

Looks like A. breckonii to me; it even has the double veil showing.
