Observation 11800: Amanita Pers.

When: 2008-10-02

Collection location: Larch Mountain, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Notes:
Am not positive about this identification. Used Aurora’s Mushrooms Demystified key, and it ended up in the “Lepidellas”, but lacks any large warts on it. So, if anyone can suggest a better name for something here on the West Coast at about 2000 feet elevation, please share!

Thiersii is a particularly interesting lepidella that is believed to be non-mycorrhizal (another exception to the rules!) and alas, this isn’t it!
