V3 or ??

This seems to be the species I’ve labeled “species V3”…(or something close to it) and is one of the taxa that get called “ceciliae” (or “inaurata” or “strangulata”) in eastern N. America. V3 is depicted on the New Jersey Pine Barrens checklist of the Amanita Studies site. For other taxa in the group see also “species T1” on the east Texas and Gulf Coast checklist or “species 49” and “species S3” back on the NJPB checklist or the species page for Amanita sororcula. For something with wilder color on the universal veil, see the species page for A. colombiana. And to see the true A. ceciliae of Europe, check its species page.

Very best

This one was collected at a different site… nearby oak. Friable volva buried about an inch in the ground.
