Observation 70105: Amanita velatipes G.F. Atk.
When: 2011-06-24
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The torrential rain showers we’ve been having has been washing away some of the features on these pantheroid mushrooms. The “gutter” margin on the basal bulb is occasionally obliterated, and the annuli are all over the stipes, often washed away completely. I’m currently finding these types in lots of different environments, and the size of the fruit bodies varies greatly. The cap colors vary along the lines of velatipes or multisquamosa… But one obs (will post separately) consisted of some really big ones that had the tannish multisquamosa tint. So does the l/w spore quotient. I’ve been seeing spores that are subglobose to globose as well as some with q ~ 1.7. spores always non amyloid.

Thing that intrests me about this obs is the variability in the placements of the annuli.
