Observation 11178: Amanita Pers.

When: 2008-09-15

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Didn’t manage to get a look at the stem base, or the best photos (it was on a 45 degree slope and I had to approach it at an awkward angle to that slope; so sue me) but this looks like an Amanita to me: tall, stately, with a ring and free white gills, and lacking the cap appearance of a Lepiota or close relative.

The fairly wide gap between gills and stem is distinctive.

that seems likely, as A. citrina (and possibly its f. lavendula variant) occur regularly at that time. Of course, in 2008 I was less familiar with the species found there than I am now.

maybe something in the citrina group.
