Collection location: Serpent Mound, Peebles, Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Vincent F. Andwan (andwanvf)

No specimen available

These were fruiting from the first curve of the tail of the Serpent effigy, a protected and private site. Therefore, I was unable to examine closely or remove a specimen for spore print and further inspection.

I did not see any sign of a bulbous base or egg shape. No defined lines at base.
Scaley near at bottom of stem.

No strong odor.

Caps did not appear very red? Amanita rubescens var. alba?

Although I considered A. amerirubescens, the stains on the gills seemed more brown or maybe dirty rust. The top of the largest mushroom appeared very brown in color in its later stage. The other younger specimen’s caps were more white overall than brown. Maybe Amanita rubescens var. alba, per mushroomexpert.com
