Hi Rod,
no glare on the cap. The colour of the cap varies, but in the location there it is every year in all exemplares quite pale. Also I have never seen exemplares there with guttation drops. May be this is due to the thermofilous biotop. The location were the pictures are from is quite rich and has in some years hundred or more fruitbodies, so that people collect them for eating.

Dear Rod,
no problem in this case. My older material from before 2005 all lies in STU and is available only on request there.
By the way, I have quite a dozen Amanitopsis collection from calcareous broad leaf forests here (e.g. cf. malleata, cf. fraudulenta) and not all of them could be identified ;-)

Oh, lovely!

I’m so glad to see this species posted.

Was there a little glare on the caps? To me, they seem a bit paler than a lot of European field guide illustrations.

I would love to see your dried material of this species, mollisia.

Very best,
