I will send a piece of the large specimen sometime next week.
They didn’t fare all that well well (the were found at the beginning of a long, rainy camping trip and spent a lot of time on the dashboard), but they’re good enough for some applications.
PS I read through the articles on Peck and McIlvaine in that book today… thanks again!
It seems I’m bass ackwards. I think I was thinking of Amanita muscaria var. persicina, also with a peachy cap. Good eyes, Christian.
This Amanita is more common North of your area.
when I spotted them.
Finding rare Amanitas in my neck of the woods! I didn’t think they grew this far up north. Envious!
I’ve only found this mushroom 4 or 5 times in 20 years and twice in the same spot on consectutive years in mid August,
After I left NEMF.
I’m not too hot on Eastern trees yet, but Hemlock, Black Spruce, Yellow Birch, Beech, and perhaps blueberry.
Or on the way out of there? Interesting that you should find this in upstate New York the same day I fould it in central CT. And what was the habitat? Any blueberries nearby?
