Single large possibly Amanita growing in loose gravel and Eucalyptus Forest semi dry soil. The veil was fully intact. Spore print was difficult to obtain but a good chance it was White. There was also a moisture stain when attempting to obtain a spore colour/print. The Stipe had a remarkable extension below the bulb area that was as long as the straight section of the stipe, and tapered away at the end of the section.. Gills close. (unfortunately the extended stipe is not shown fully but was as long as the straight section or as equal in distance to the cross measurement of the cap. The cap had some warty effects in circular pattern. The cap was approximately { 5"(inches across) or about – 15cm.}

This material was accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it to be sampled for DNA sequencing.


The partial veil seems pale yellow.

At least the gill edges, if not the faces, also seem yellow.

Very best,



Rod, I have no recollection of a similar Amanita, ( being loaded to MO site), in the past, with the what almost seemed to be a Tap root . The specimen was free of infestation I believe, and in the large size category.

Interesting, Ian.

It has a sterile margin to the pileipellis, but I’m not certain if the sterile margin is appendiculate with bits of universal veil.

Do you remember posting this sort of critter in the past?

Nice to see your photographs.

Very best,
