What heat of August? It’s been like May or something. #&%! climate change!

The purple tones in this Amanita are more pronounced than any I have seen in other specimens of A. citrina. I recall Ret hypothesizing that the purple might be due to cool temps, but this mushroom was growing in the heat of August.
