On the look out for the next round of excavations.

Very best,


Hasty excavation

I probably broke part of the bulbs as I picked them. These seem to sit right on top of the soil, with a good portion of the bulb already visible. As a consequence, I don’t normally break out my knife to dig them up, thinking (wrongly perhaps) that I can carefully pick them without breaking the bulb off.

(In short, I think these do have a point to their bulbs. I’ll see about doing some more careful excavation tomorrow.)

Amanita pubescens sensu Coker is described as having a somewhat radicating bulb.
