The yellow appearence may be my photography rather than a true representation of the color. The cap was apricot on the disk with a white bloom fading to orange yellow toward the margin. Large salmon/yellow veil remnants clung to the cap when I first saw it but later were gone. Stipe pale yellow with loose ring appressed to the cap. Only the volva was white all other parts were yellowish orange. the gill edges appear sawtoothed, remnants of the partial veil I think, though I haven’t scoped it yet. Habitat was Black Birch, Gray Birch, Red Maple, early growth trees about 3-5 inches in diameter and yes, there was Blueberry about 10 feet away from these fruitbodies.
if accurate does not fit the A. wellsii I have seen.
ret’s description on the Amanita Studies website very well. Striations along cap margin are short. Yellow ring atop basal bulb.
What is the habitat?
