Found growing gregariously in open grassy area near live oaks. Short, squatty amanita, with soft warts (quick to disappear after a rain), a radish-shaped bulb, and crowded gills. No annulus. Color is cream, vague yellow-gold.

Did I mention that A. pubescens has a very unusual 5’ motif for nrLSU?

Out of hundreds of species, I have only seen the same variant in Amanita aprica (section Amanita), A. magniverrucata (section Lepidella), and A. proxima (recently proposed to be moved from section Amidella to section Lepidella).

Instead of the common form of the 5’ motif of nrLSU (“TTGACCTCAAATCA”), the group listed has the form “TTGGCCTCAAATCA.”

Very best,

The mature spores are rather distinctive.
