Observation 50373: Amanita onusta (Howe) Sacc.
When: 2010-08-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing very small in sandy soils i often find this one. Its deep rooting stalk makes it a member of the
Lepidella group. It has really pointed scales on the top and as RET aptly describes “gives up on its gills easily”, as you can see by the collapsing in the picture.
