The bulb does suggest the “pantherinoid” group. Did you notice striations on the cap margin and squarely cut-off short gills?


Seriously, tho’….

I don’t know about Montana, but there are honey-colored pantherinoid taxa in the PNW coastal states. Amanita pantherinoides is one of them. They have been so rarely collected (or rarely recognized) that I don’t feel we can confidently name them from pictures.

Again, Salvia Antics, you’ve got interesting material. It would be great to get it described from fresh material, dried, and under a microscope.

Very best,


The Internet!

It seems like the other pantherinas Ive seen on the internet have bulbs on the end.

we’re calling North American panther-caps Amanita ameripanthera. But, I’m not sure this is even that; it has a bulb at the stipe base. Do the true panther-caps?
