Im taking a spore print right now and will proceed with drying it, although its starting to smell a bit so we will see if it stays good enough to dry(im just fan drying right now and it takes forever with chopped up mushrooms so the whole mushroom might rot by the time it drys). I will, however, have the spore print for it no matter what. Also it doesn’t seem to bruise any color really i think it just looks like it in the pictures.

Sounds good

The bulb is subabrupt and has a distinct raised margin. The flesh of the stem appears to be staining red on exposure. I don’t know an amanita like that of the top of my head (or the bottom either). I think it would be a good idea for Salvia Antics to dry and save unusual amanitas for further study.
