The old key (espeially for sect. Lepidella) will still be of some use…

to work off of. Is the Amanita key on your site that is “out of date” still the most up-to-date key available for Section Lepidella?

Ill get some spore measurements Monday.

Since there are distinct warts on the cap, and the little guy has a dog-legged bulb, it is possible that this collection represents A. rhopalopus, but we can’t get close enough to see the surfaces of the warts in detail. This is the freshest collection of those you posted today, Steve. Determination may be possible from microscopic examination.

Very best,
