Observation 55260: Amanita muscaria subsp. flavivolvata Singer

These were growing near lodgepole pine and red fir at about 7500 ft.
The warts on the caps were very white, the annulus was substantial but fairly thin, and the basal bulb seemed a little rounder than the average A. muscaria.
The spores were a little on the small size; ~ 8.4-9.3 X 6.7-7.2 microns with an average Q = 1.27.
I’m only posting them because they looked a little different from the A. muscaria var. flavivolvata we see on the coast.

The dried material and notes that you sent have been received.

What does “SNO Park” mean (following “Echo Summit” on location line of your note form). Do you know the county the collection was made in?

Thank you very much.

Very best,
