Observation 11992: Amanita Pers.

When: 2008-10-04

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

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Notes:
Keys out in Aurora as A. velosa, which this is NOT! Cap is 3-4 inches above humus layer, volva saclike, cap without universal veil remnants (but see piece in back of stipe), cap slimy-viscid, stipe narrowing toward the cap. Color I would say was pale pinkish-tan, with hints of striations at the edge of the cap. No annulus seen, but did not dig this specimen up. It was common in the area, though.

it’s a grisette; other than that…

..no vaginata here in N. America; this is a big group of confusing amanitas, many of which don’t have good names. Amanita sp. is prob. as good as we’ll get.

You COULD always dig up a nice collection and dry it for some poor, future elucidator of this group, tho! Be sure and describe the mushroom while fresh; not so easy to recreate it unseen from the dessicata. Rod has a form that you could use, a sort of fill-in-the-blanks amanita description.

Nice photo, tho!

Perhaps A. vaginata
