Yeah, that was a very HOT foray. After three days trying to do microscopy in that gym, I had my first (hopefully only) hypoglycemic episode brought on by heat. I knew my doctor said something about “no hot tubs”….

for those who don’t sleep, eat and dream amanitas…onusta is one of the blessedly easy to ID (generally speaking) lepidellas.

key characteristics: small size (this one can be key. ;), black(ish) and white coloration, sometimes swollen, rooting bulb with recurved scales, and/or strongly sinuous stipe and ephemeral fruit body; this pretty little amanita is small and delicate! at least, it didn’t last long when collected and brought into a 98 degree gymnasium at a PA NEMF foray that I attended; of course, neither did the human participants!
