Observation 161319: Amanita Pers.

Two similar fruiting bodies in close proximity. One specimen was large, Cap 11cm, Stipe 16cm. The other specimen was about half this size. Both were growing in forest floor leaf litter and soil. The bulbous base on the largest specimen was soft to touch. The smaller specimen was more rubbery when pressure applied to the bulbous base.


Gill colour (for RET) colour balanced with colour card.(natural, no saturation or PS changes.)

Rod, The Gills were and still are “Yellowish”. As far as a smell I would say “less than a normal mushroom” odour, even a “day” after the find. For some reason here in Oz, my finds do not seem to usually have a defining smell>>> except for the "normal m’roomy odour. (of course there is the exception but only very occasionally.{excluding Stinkhorns].) I am not sure why this is so?
Your small parcel should arrive in the next few days all being well. A small section of the (half)of pileus specimen is still free from the paper. You will notice where I have taken a small sample for scoping. Chow, and thanks for the comments.kk

Were the gills yellowish or ochre? Was there a distinct smell?

Very cool stuff.

Very best,
