This could be the red-capped “flavoconia”

i.e., sp-MD01…

or, if they were right about its being imported to Italy in one spot, Amanita erythrocephala Neville et al.

We’ll see what we can do about this hypothesis…

Very best,

that the photo is at least a fair representation of the cap color. What color is it upon drying? I just noticed that it is red in the center but that could be a camera artifact, but I would say it is orange towards the margin and there is a thin thin strip of lighter orange around the entire margin. Weird. I’ll add another photo of a button I took the day before…

Was this cap really this color? Brick red?

Very best,
