and indeed I did reassemble the fruit body prior to taking its picture.
My memory may not be correct, but I remember the bulb as being (at least largely) detached…maybe Debbie did some pre-photo semi-surgery. The specimen must have started drying before it was very old, because the warts on the bulb were only partially turned to brown, but they were classic in that they formed many rows of small warts on the bulb.
We had enough concern that we went over the specimen in some detail and, as a side-effect, posted a summary of Bas’ 1969 description of the species on WAO along with Bas’ treatments of onusta and nitida sensu Coker.
indeed, many of those amanitas at the foray were hardly at their best.
still, the bulb is there, relative to the rest of the stipe.
Who took the bicycle pump and deflated this? I’m sure rod identified it and all but that base is small.
