Amanita “sponsus,” aka C-20 and “ohlone” and the Lep-Validae Lovechild has low warts, a membranous annulus and browns rather than reddens. It is most similar to A. novinupta.

Magniverrucata has large warts that arise directly from the cap tissue (i.e. cannot be easily removed) and often is enormous with a deeply rooting stipe.

This as of yet not formally named amanita is a member of Amanita section Validae. Magniverrucata is a Lepidella.

I would like to learn more about “ohlone”. How can I tell the difference between it and magniverrucata?
