A. flavoconia perhaps

Thanks, Dr. Tulloss. I’ll see about getting you some specimens this year. Are there any Amanitas you are particularly interested in receiving?

in NC I found this Amanita too and identified it as A. flavoconia. It was found a few times by me along with A.flavorubens. But I didn’t find A.elongata, so I am just of little help…

I think this one would require a microscope…

The white stipe and annulus on a species suggesting A. flavoconia might be either that species or A. elongata. The only way I know to go with this is start measuring spores as a first step. And while I was at it, I’d check the spores in Melzer’s Reagent to kill two birds with one section…just to be sure that I’m right about the species being a possible relative of A. flavoconia.
