Patrick,

Thanks for the email. Amanita bisporigera, A. ocreata, and some of the white destroying angels of eastern Asia will all pick up a yellowish or even pinkish tint over the center of the cap on occasion. Usually this is not of significance in identification; however, there has been a species recently named from China that seems to have a pinkish tint over the disc has a significant taxonomic character.

Very best,

Rod
