Notice in one of the cap pictures that one complete wart is shown remaining. It is very irregular. Notice on the top of the carrot-like bulb, the volval remnants have caused the flesh to split up into rectangular scales. These two characters are good field characters for Amanita cinereopannosa (gray-rangs) amanita. The warts look like they are mudpies made by elf-children who have left the fingerprints in their work.

The odor of a fresh specimen is like freshly mixed biscuit dough (or Bisquik).

This is a species I’m always pleased to find because it is one of the North American species named by my mentor, Dr. Cornelis Bas.

Very best,

Rod

I cant seem to find anything that matches this one in my field guide, its the only one like it ive seen in the area i was hunting. I usually find tons of cokeri but have never seen this one before. Im interested in knowing what it is.

Lepidella.

I have also been seeing this very amanita in North Carolina. Hopefully Rod will weigh in!

White and gray are difficult colors to capture on film (pixels). Many of my attempts lack the detail of this picture.
