All characteristics of A. muscaria except for time of year. I have heard accounts of small fruitings appearing in the spring in a few older sources and this season has definitely been surprising me left and right, so it could be muscaria possibly. Not a Gem or aprica due to orange/red tinge in smaller specimens.
Fruiting beneath Douglas fir tree at edge of trail head near F lot parking lot.
Temp: (63 sunny) although weather has been in record low temps for the last month.

Deb, we’re going to take the old site down sometime in the next year. So maybe an update of your link will become necessary. The new site has everything that the old one did and adds a technical tab to the page with a sporograph and other stuff.
Nice illustrations and history of the taxonomy with this species. The first one I found was “apricot” colored as well and I never really knew all the little key features to it until Christian and Tim pointed out the warts adhering to the cap skin. After reading your BAMS page on the species I feel very familiar and well aware of its minor differences (and similarities) to both A.muscaria and A.Gemmatta. Thanks for the help >.<
with a combination of characters that can easily be misinterpreted as both muscaria or gemmata.
check out the BAMS aprica page here: http://bayareamushrooms.org/mushroommonth/aprica.html
Apologies- didn’t notice the order of the messages… Many thanks to you too!
He made me look closer at the observation….
in addition to these characteristics does point to aprica for sure. Thanks again for the help kind sir >.<
Keep up the great work as well! Not too many of us databasing our wonderful state..
Ironed on- that’s a good point. I was definitely thrown off by the orange/red central tinge and remaining red underneath the skin when peeled. I will check back later tomorrow evening and do some testing of those warts for sure. Thanks Tim >.< Nice Pantherina pic today by the way!
