Observation 70447: Amanita daucipes (Mont.) Lloyd

When: 2011-06-22

Collection location: Saleeby-Fischer YMCA, Rockwell, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Matt Sherman (Shermanii)

Specimen available

Single, growing near Quercus coccinea, Quercus alba, and other hardwoods, there may have been a few small pines as well.

I have the cap from this one but it was too immature to produce a spore print…I probably should have just left it there.

Recognized by sight: Looks fluffy — probably would have had lots of stuff hanging off the edge of the cap. What did this smell like? Kind of musty?

Staining on the bulb and the ring left from the internal limb of the volva are good markers even though the volval warts on the cap are still rather pale.

Very best,

I’d say the smell was kind of musty.
