Yellow eastern amanitas…

There are at least three in sect. Validae alone: elongata, flavoconia, and flavorubens. Amanita frostiana is a muscarioid species, but can be confused with flavoconia because of color similarity. Our variant of the red N. American muscarioid species of the West is also largely (or sometimes entirely) yellow. We’re just chock-a-block with yellow amanitas.
