Odor of bread dough

It has seemed to me, when I’ve collected A. cinereopannosa fresh, that its odor was of fresh biscuit dough (dough without yeast). You can see some pix of the species on the old Amanita Studies site at


Very best,


I did not keep them or smell them, unfortunately.

I took these shots the day before I left for Indiana and then I came home for a short time and went back to my native state of West Virginia. So, I wasn’t able to follow up. I haven’t been in the habit of collecting, mostly because I wouldn’t know what to do with them. I was amazed at how fast these grew. I would be more than willing to email you all the pics I took in their unedited state. Maybe they might shed a clue or not. I will pay more attention next time to the attributes mentioned.

Irregular, gray, lumpy warts…

make me think of A. cinereopannosa. Do you know anything about the odor? Can you get a shot of the lower base and complete bulb…especially any decoration on the lower stem and the bulb?

My herbarium only has collections of A. cinereopannosa (if that’s what this is) from Tennessee and North Carolina north. If you have this from Louisiana, I’d be very interested in dried material.

Very best,
