The bottom of the stem…

For amanitas (and many other groups), seeing the bottom of the stem is really important. Since I’ve just seen the undescribed species that I think is shown in this picture and because of the cap color, the striate cap margin, the type of warts on the cap, and the other remains of the volva that can be seen on the stem, I don’t have a problem in judging the species to fall in Amanita sect. Vaginatae. But it would be best to see the (expected) lack of a bulb on the stem base before assuming that the bulb is not there.

:-) The above starts to seem like a tongue twister… Don’t try to say it fast.
