Next time I’ll bring a small box with a bunch of dessicant… Heh, and hide it at the bottom of one of my buddy’s packs. :)

Amanita flavoconia is not known from west of the Central Plains.

So I don’t think that flavoconia is likely to be the final ID here.

Harry Thiers reported something he called “flavoconia” that had rather narrow spores (unlike the eastern species’ broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid spores).

Jason, can you put spores under a scope?

R.
