yup, the bright color, striations and annulus put it in section caesarea…

and the smaller layer of subhymenial “oranges” (see Rod’s recent remarks on this subject) make it a “slender” caesar!

there is a very interesting story on the name as well: Mary Banning was an wonderful artist and amateur mycologist, but Rod knows the story better than I…

this is a small and beautiful and distinctive SE amanita that I have also had the pleasure of collecting, but only when I’m far from my California home…

the group of “Caesars.” I haven’t seen any yet this year, but it’s often common in our oak woods here in PA. Seems to prefer hot weather. The cap striations are persistent.

Is this related to A. caesarea (or rather probably A. jacksonii)?
