Observation 261302: Amanita novinupta group

Notes:
Two examples on my drier.

Our CA novinupta is normally a late winter/spring fruiter. This is decidedly fall. But of course, it is also our only good (unusually early in October) rain in quite a while, after several drought years and only one recovery year last year, where very few MR sp. fruited, probably due to ongoing tree stress. Found in a mixed woodland with tan oak and redwood.

Cryptic sp. in our western blushers?
