They were growing under an oak tree. Caps were about 6 inches across on larger ones. First time I ever saw this species of amanita. It must be a rare one at least in the north east.

Anyone else seen this one? It fruits scattered to gregarious under Quercus, often red oak, usually in October. It appears to fruit most commonly in lawn areas. I have found it in several Ohio locations and in Letchworth St. Park in Western NY.
