either oak OR pine…

apparently. Both are listed as host trees in Rod Tulloss and Jan Lindgren’s original species description.

Nearest oak

I checked my notes and if I remember correctly the nearest oak was across the street about 50’. I’ll collect it next time if that is what I think it is.

next time you come across one of these…

take it home with you. IF it is protecta, it will yellow in all parts, w/age and handling. Also curious to hear that it was growing under pine…no oaks anywhere?

See this example of protecta from the Pt. Reyes Mycoblitz. That amanita showed NO yellow anywhere the day it was collected; my photo was taken the next morning.


You’re welcome…

But, I can’t be completely confident on my ID just from these photos.
If you find more, check for rusty staining on the cap patches and volva, more gray fibrils on the stipe and in more typical specimens, heavier patches and a grayer cap.

See the other observations on MO to decide for yourself whether or not you’re convinced. There are some very nice examples by Debbie Viess and Boleslaw Kuznik.

Thanks Christian. I’ve been finding a few of these and was confused.
