Hello, Rob.

Amanita rubescens is a Eurasian species (although it has been moved to other continents in forest plantation activities).

I think this is more likely to be a North American native species…a species that is being studied at the moment by a group of which the team here in Roosevelt, New Jersey, are partners. From your handle (gourmand), I guess that you collect mushrooms to eat and photograph. Do you ever dry material for scientific study? If so, would you be so kind as to send a dried specimen of this species to me.

Very best,
