Observation 50405: Amanita Pers.
When: 2010-08-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This mushroom (two sides of the same fungus) was pushing up through the sopping wet duff under a Monterey pine, off of Grizzly Peak Blvd., at about 1600 ft. elevation. In this view, it was about 8-10 cm high, and maybe 7 cm in diameter. It reminds me of a puffball – but I couldn’t find any pictures that really confirmed that.

[admin – Tue Aug 17 14:06:49 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Oakland, Alameda Co., California, USA’ to ‘Oakland, California, USA
