Observation 77072: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2011-09-17
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found under red fir.

Debbie took these, and put a YNP number of them, so she will probably have to post something about these later, but these are part of the Yosemite National Park Fungal Survey, I just don’t have the YMP number.

The stipe is grey, and the gill grey marginate, cap zonate grey to brown, striate, veil and volva staining red-brown.

If I was in Europe I would slap on the name A. umbrinolutea, and you can compare with an obs. here:


And discussion… also there is an obs. from central Europe:


But in California at high altitude (~8500ft), under red fir, yeah, not sure what to call them.
