No specimen available

I have made a collection of this specimen, and am drying it before sending it to Rod Tuloss for inclusion at Herbarium Rooseveltensis Amanitarum in Roosevelt, NJ. The collection was found on Larch Mountain, Multnomah County, Oregon on Oct. 17, 2008 under a new pure stand of Western hemlock at about milepost 5.2 on the Larch Mountain Road, uphill side (left). Only this single specimen found, but didn’t stay in the area very long.
