Observation 6282: Amanita constricta Thiers & Ammirati
When: 2008-02-02
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was the first mushroom that we spotted on a piney slope above Hwy. 1.
Absolutely pristine, and an excellant example of the species: dark, mono-toned cap, no prominant umbo, medium length of striations, middle third of volva adherant to stipe (constricted), upper volva flaring, with a gray lining.
Classic example! It even survived heavy handling by the Albion multitudes; nobody can seem to resist a photo op with a huge and gorgeous amanita!
