Collection location: Walking Stick Rd. Macon Co, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]
On soil under Rhododendron, White-pine, Hemlock, and White-oak in moist woods.
Pileus 3 1/2mm wide. Lightly viscid when collected… dry in photos. Three small white patches on disc. Slightly umbonate. No annulus. Base/bulb not scaly or ringed. No strong fragrance.
Not an Amanita I’m familiar with. Looked like a A. citrina until I saw the lack of annulus and the small and smooth base/bulb, and lacked “raw potato” scent.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for checking out the posting. There was no annulus evident on the stalk when I found it- and it was looking fairly fresh. Not sure if that would rule out A. praecox or not?
The yellow on albocreata is strongly restricted to very center of the cap. There is a very-pantherina-like rolled sock type remnant of universal veil on the top of the bulb in albocreata.
btw, Luke, you can change the Notes section by clicking ‘Edit Observation’ and updating the info accordingly.
Correction: Pileus is 3 1/2CM wide… not mm. ~ Luke
