PV remnants, taller stature, and rings of tissue around the stipe base that is pointed below remind me more of A. smithiana. I think without a scope, that species shouldn’t be ruled out.

Yes,You are right.

A. silvicola is a better fit. I don’t have access to a scope. Thanks for the direction.


You might consider Amanita silvicola.

Well, then you might consider Amanita silvicola as a possible name for this observation.

Do you have access to a scope?

Very best,


No, Rod.

Only what is shown on the split photo. Unless it was very thin.

Was there a long “rooting” base on this that got cut off?
