Thanks for the tips Dave and Ross! I’ll keep them in mind for future reference.

I second David’s comments.

Also, this cap color would be a bit unusual for multisquamosa.

If there were a globose bulb on the bottom of the stem, you might want to check these thoughts:

If there there were a funnel-shaped partial veil on the stem of this mushroom, then I’d suggest you check Amanita velatipes as a possibility.

If there were no partial veil on the stem, then I’d suggest checking Amanita sp-S01.



Very best,

Rod Tulloss

Gary, when hoping to ID amanitas based upon visual traits…

information about the stipe (stalk) base is important. So carefully excavating a specimen is advised. Also, a good straight-on view of the cap surface is helpful, to see the extent of any marginal striations.

I suppose the same suggestions apply to lots of types of mushrooms. But when it comes to amanitas, it is often the case that the base of the stipe is buried.
