Observation 143335: Amanita Pers.

When: 2013-08-20

Collection location: Northampton, Massachusetts, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dianna Smith

No specimen available

I found these pretty smallish Amanitas in a mostly conifer forest with hemlock and pine. The cap color is a pale yellow-tan with the color fading toward the margin, which appears faintly lined underneath a dusted layer of floccose material left from the universal veil. A small amount of the universal veil is thinly attached to the margin. The gill edges are crenulate – uneven. No ring appears on the stem, though there are soft remnants of floccose material mainly at the base, which is enclosed in a soft mycelial layer like the cap.
