Observation 81195: Amanita citrina f. lavendula (Coker) Veselý

When: 2011-10-26

Collection location: Franklin Parker Preserve, Chatsworth, New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

By far, the dominant and omnipresent Amanita sp. in the Pine Barrens in October. In young specimens, the volval remnants on the cap and bulb are of the purple-lavender color that turns brown in older specimens. The bulb is rather abrupt and enormous. There might be another taxon of A. citrina in this region that has a less robust-looking bulb and no volval remnants on the pileus, but I could be wrong.
