Cristina examined a specimen from this collection today and measured 20 spores. The measurements are a fairly good match to those from Reid’s original description (which I’d guess contained some immature spores). We posted our partial results for this collection on the technical tab at this URL:



I tried to find a match for this on Rod Tulloss’ website…

the closest that I could come was this amanita:

However, the habitat is wrong, and it doesn’t mention the yellow underside of the pv (a rather obvious character). And sadly, no photo there.

It is a good match for your amanita cap color and the gray, farinose uv on the cap.

No specific ID yet, but it’s a very cool amanita! Try and dry some if you can…

It must be. There were no amanitas before a couple of weeks ago and now they seem to be everywhere. It’s great!

well Lucy

I don’t know if we can tell you what this is…
but we can sure tell you that it’s out!

looks like all three validae amanitas of OZ may be collections of the same species.

is your season just starting there? boletes and amanitas are a classic (and much beloved) early season phenomenon.
