I thought this was too white for submaculata

I don’t have any melzers or iodine, but I did save the specimen from 72548, which I’m sure is the same kind.

Hi, Dan.

Amanita submaculata has a brownish gray, virgate cap with little “eyelets” (little “eye-shapes” with the longer dimension arranged radially) that lack pigment or are gaps in the pileipellis allowing a view of the white flesh of the cap. Also there is often a distinctly fruit-like odor to the fruiting body. Also, the lower stem is not shaggy with material of the volva’s internal limb…as I can see in the second photo of your material. Do you have Melzer’s Reagent or iodine? I’m wondering if this lady might be in sect. Amanita.

Very best,
