Observation 61051: Amanita smithiana Bas
When: 2010-12-19
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Was initially leaning towards Amanita, but it just looks a little off. They pushed up through hard grassy, gravelly ground near pine, and I think Madrona was fairly close as well. Near a baseball field. I tried to pry the specimens as whole as possible, but they did get a bit mashed up as the ground was tough.

I have one specimen drying, and one printing. I will try out some microscopy and see what I can find.

It is not visible in these photos, but the margin was ragged.

Recognized by sight: white amanita sp., with appendiculate (ragged) margin. typically has a rooting base, but it looks as tho it might have been left behind in the ground. with time, the fluffy white universal veil remnants on the cap can be removed, leaving a shiny glabrous cap surface like you show here.
