Observation 12876: Amanita Pers.

When: 2008-10-15

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Looks like Amanita sect. Amanita here. Found on the outskirts of the semi-open Eastern white pine stand, but in a part of the fringe area that also has birch and jack pine.

The first one I didn’t even recognize as an Amanita until I tipped it over and saw the stem base.

1 — thumbnail, derived from 4.
2, 3 — first one found; small and dried-out.
4 — a nearby one, more immediately recognizable as a muscarioid taxon.
5, 6 — a very odd one; drying probably affected it.
7, 8 — two separate larger ones, with the warts more or less gone. The last one was found some distance from the others, but still in the same general ecology.
