I agree that IF this is parcivolvata, this is an unusual form…

why not reserve judgement until we can confirm its identity?

The cap color reminds me more of a slender caesar, altho if you NEVER see an annulus with these…can’t be in section Caesarea.

odd that you never see the typical for parcivolvata warts on the cap with this population, either.

as far as I am concerned, there is room for doubt in this ID.

Rod, I’m sending, along with the other Amanitas.

Dan. You’re really confident. I’m not.

If you dry a specimen…

A. parcivolata

“perhaps be something close to A.parcivolvata instead?”

Yeah, A. parcivolvata. Stem color is yellow to white. There is never an annulus, and you will always see see fuzziness on both the gills and the stem, like they were once connected but pulled apart.

Give a listen?

I’m not arguing, first off. I agree that these look like A.parcivolvata, buy I’ve been finding many of these in a hollow in Millwood, Pa and they never have volval remnants on the cap. Also they are never the solid red on the pileus like the ones I find at Keystone Lake. Could these perhaps be something close to A.parcivolvata instead?
