so that you can get a well-expanded, mature, fruiting body.


Another Possibility – Amanita rhopalopus?

I also found another possibility; the Amanita rhopalopus, however the stipe on the mature mushroom looks a bit too large. I will try to return to them this evening after work and photograph a mature mushroom…this should differentiate between the two. Thank you again for your direction!

No problem…

We’ll see what the others have to say. Most likely A. daucipes though I think.
