Amanita bispoirigera is much more likely

I’ve collected bisporigera on the Island of Newfoundland, and Amanita ocreata is known from the U.S. west coast states only. Hence, I think A. bisporigera is much more likely to be the name of your destroying angel.

Very best,


Destroying Angel

This mushroom was hypnotically beautiful and deliciously fragrant.
