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

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!
