Observation 11897: Amanita amerimuscaria Tulloss & Geml nom. prov.

When: 2008-09-29

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Notes:
Greyish warts on a pale cap with a reddish center. Yellowish stem and ring, with white freeish gills.

These were scattered in meadow near the mossy pine forest, near Cladonia cristatella (obs. 11696).

First photo: observation thumbnail derived from a photo of specimen two.
Next two photos: a damaged specimen a bit bigger than my hand.
Next three: another similar-sized specimen, fresher. Ring still partly present on stem.
Next two: a specimen the size of a tea saucer! In the wide-angle view, the grey stick behind the mushroom is a small tree sapling. This was easily twice as wide as either of my hands.
