orange-brown spots on the volva…

This is characteristic of several taxa…including a number of those closely related to Amanita fulva.

Check out the taxa listed in the provisional “Amanita series Fulva”:

http://www.amanitaceae.org/?series+Fulvae

There are clearly groups with rust-spotted volval sacs and other groups that lack that trait. The groups with the trait include at least the provisional stirpes (plural of “stirps”) Crocea, Fulva, and Romagnesiana.

The photo looks like the red is oversaturated again. Maybe John Plischke III or Noah Siegel could write down what they tried to explain to me this summer about adjusting digital cameras to try to address this sort of problem. I’m afraid I did not pick up enough of it, myself. :-(

Very best,

Rod

Is that characteristic of A. amerifulva?
