Observation 52032: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2010-09-05
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Stipe base was buried about two inches deep, and most of the volval sac was lost when the mushroom was dug up. This seems a bit unusual for amerifulva. Cap color a bit dark for amerifulva.

Unexpanded cap

showed tightly arranged marginal striations, as expected for a Grisette. Volval sac mostly fell apart, but I did manage to dig up some of it that clung to the stipe base (from bottom to about 2 cm up the stipe).

found two specimens just like these, they’re def. not Amanitas.
It had a sort of ridgy cap, yes?
