This is the 2nd specimen that was found in close proximity to Obs: 16387. It was in a shaded area of the forest,( by trees) in the area, and growing in the forest soil. It is similar to 163877 in physical structure, but because of some differences in structure I have loaded it separately. There also appears to be some unusual rings on the stipe below the veil. The colouring is correct and the light red tinge was more evident in this mature specimen in the top area of the stipe and the top of the cap. Both 163877 and 163878 had stipes about 3.5cm. The cap on this specimen was more open and measured about 3.5cm. They may even be separate species.?? Both specimens lost soil of the base very easily.

This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

Couple of interesting Amanitas you found growing in close proximity to one another. The thing that strikes me as most different about this one, from 163877, is what appears to be reddening of damaged parts. X877 appears to show a bit of brown inside the wound on the lower stipe. But this one reminds me of the rubescens types I see here in NA. Ground color on this one looks whiter than X877.

still on stipe is part of the upper cap, I think. The first ring is consistent with the remains of the annulus with pieces still adherring to the cap of the mushroom.

Looks like an Amanita, but features seem to be Catathelasma.

I don’t know how the bulbous base fits in to all of this.

Interesting collection, Ian!
