What it is not. What it could be.

This species is very likely to be a gemmatoid (or pantherinoid?) species of sect. Amanita. It is very interesting to contrast it with observation 8294. Notice the strong difference in the lengths of the marginal striation on the caps in the two cases.

This species has a skirt on the stem that looks like it would disappear before this mushroom got much older. After writing several notes to the collector…and thinking some more about its determination. I’m inclined to look for the possible name in the NJ Pine Barrens checklist/picturebook on the Amanita Studies site or in COMA or NEMF foray lists. It isn’t A. praecox. It isn’t A. sp. 34. It isn’t A. crenulata. It isn’t A. sp. S1.

One remaining species with a name that might be a match is A. russuloides. I don’t know this last species well. I have rarely seen material that matched the original description and Jenkins’ study of the type. Are there any other opinions?
