upon whether I am in a lumper or a splitter mode!

same mushroom, probably ocreata in both cases, but really only the DNA will tell for sure. until then, take your pick!

fer sure not a good one for the fry pan …

Do you think this is different from the observation I linked in which you proposed sect. Phalloideae?

can often show a surprising amount of color on its cap. I have even seen them with a perfect orangey color match to a classic velosa.

Bettah know your mushrooms if an amanita dinner is your goal! ;)
