Observation 10044: Amanita muscaria subsp. flavivolvata Singer

While many of these were collected during the forage, this particular one was found at Cape Lookout, Tillamook Co., OR. Pretty, isn’t it?

Recognized by sight: In North America, the true A. muscaria of Eurasia is known only from northern parts of Alaska. A new paper based on DNA studies can be found in the “biogeography” and “molecular phylogeny” parts of the Amanita Studies website. The first author of the paper is Jozsef Geml; he is joined by several other authors. So my choice for the name of this species is based on geography backed by my experience and Dr. Geml’s results. By the way, color of the volva is often yellow in both taxa (despite many statements to the contrary). The yellow fades to “whitish” in both taxa. Rod
