Who: John Harlan (harlanx6)

No specimen available

It has a volva and bulb, cream white gills and just looks like Amanita to me, but I can’t ID it. It seems to have brown spores. I didn’t see an annulus.

Interesting staining…

Looks like there is a brownish-red stain around the worm holes. It’s definitely an Amanita. Normally I’d guess this is something near A. gemmata, but that discoloration has me thinking twice. Why do you think it has brown spores?
