Observation 217973: Amanita sect. Amanita

When: 2015-10-04

Collection location: Franklin Parker Preserve, Speedwell, New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

This amanitas were very common at FPP-Speedwell. We found no fewer than 4 separate collections at disjointed locations, granted one of which had more yellow than tan caps (with a darker umbo) and well-defined roundish & collared bulbs with a yellowish friable volva loosely attached. That other collection could constitute a different species altogether, still in sect. Amanita. All collections had annulate basidiomes at some stage of development. I don’t recall ever seeing any these in the 6 years of collecting in this particular area of the FPP preserve.

This and other material is/was in the hands of the Burghardts. Not sure if it’s been preserved.
