A dried specimen would really help.

Very best,


why are you calling this mushroom virgineoides?

It doesn’t have the conical warts typical of the species, and it also seems to have a sl. yellowish cap underneath the breaking flocculent warts (unlike the pure white cap of a typical lepidella). virgineoides also has conical warts on the underside of the annulus, not to mention it’s on the wrong side of the world. What it IS, tho, other than an amanita, I couldn’t tell you…

Here’s a MO link with extensive discussion about a virgineoides from japan:
