Amanita polypyramis can get very big…and this species has quite a few of the macrocharacters of A. polypyramis. It’s known to occur in some areas of Mexico…

Every year a bunch of really big white ones come into the fair. There are a few different Lepidellas in this area. Some smell like chlorine but the really big one did not.

That is the biggest fattest amanita I’ve ever seen. What species? any idea?
