Observation 11623: Amanita citrina sensu auct. amer.

When: 2008-09-25

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Possibly the same species as in obs. 11616. This was solitary, about 100m from that mushroom, and has a similar above-ground appearance. I got this one uprooted more-or-less intact, and there’s a large bulb on the stem base. It’s fairly abrupt and though something’s been nibbling on it there are indications it may have had a collar.

Greenish-white cap, close white free gills, white stem, bits of white veil on cap. Skirt-like ring on upper stem, consistent with the sort of partial veil observed on that other mushroom.

Photos: cap, whole mushroom, whole mushroom (turned 180 degrees), gills, gills (different angle), stem base.
