Observation 11993: 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

I have been having such good luck keying out Amanitas that I did not dig nor disturb this tiny Amanita. The cap was barely 1 inch across, and less than 1.5 inches above ground at this time. There is a single piece of white universal veil on the cap, which is also striate around the edges of the cap. Nothing seems to match the size of this tiny little mushroom.
