well, it sounds like we have monitors that are presenting different colors…

The two lower images with a full-frontal view of the cap have brilliant red centers on my screen.

Hope 2012 is good to all posting here.


was this mushroom reddish or brown on the cap center?

it looks brown to my eye.
and the super long striations look to be a good match to banningiana too.

why do you think it is the red-centered amanita, Rod?

Thank you.

i don’t have a dried specimen at the moment.
i’ll be keeping my eye out for sure.

What do you think of this possibility?

Amanita sp-F11


I’d like to see your dried material if you can get some of this.

Very best,


Probably not A. banningiana

The disc in banningiana is brown, not red-orange. I think I’ve seen this one previously. It’s a code-numbered species on the WAO site.
