The first Amanita in this season!

Grew in a patch of young birches between two patches of spruce nursery, with almost bare soil – A. flavescens here prefers well-lit places under birch with short grass (or no herbaceous vegetation at all) and often grows in residential areas.


lamella trama in mid-section of the lamella. The subhymenium is not very inflated.

Subhymenium inflation.

I see many basidia without sterigmata and a few with one sterigma (or, otherwise, with less than four sterigmata). Together with the low degree of subhymenium inflation, this suggests the material was not fully mature…at least in this section of the gill that you chose to examine.

A very nice photograph, Tatiana.

Very best,
