this the “yellow” caesar to which I referred

looking a bit closer after our long recent discussions, I can still see a bit of orange color in the center, but it is predominantly yellow, and that is certainly what caught my eye in the field, especially after having just collected mature, bright orange red jacksonii. These seemed at the time like something different: a yellow caesar’s amanita.

So, this too is jacksonii, with most of its original color gone?

Tough ID call at the time, and I didn’t eat them, either (altho I did collect several of the traditionally colored jacksonii and fed them to myself and the Elliott family, which was a first time for all of us).
