did you examine the specimen to make that determination Rod?

if so, what features clued you in?

The suggestion of donjonson420 is a reasonable one.

Maybe next trip if we get the end of Summer rains.

Is it…

a double PV or a limbus internus? Being pink I would think the latter. Regardless, a very interesting structure.

congrats on the “heavy rainfall!”

Everyone and everything must be rejoicing. :)

This is a very curious amanita Ian. I see an almost appendiculate margin on that undershot of the cap, which indicates a possible Lepidella, and a weirdly membranous double partial veil?

Lack of any UV materials at the base leans me towards Validae. Color could be either.

Definitely a “saver,” but then, in OZ, what isn’t??! Wish I could be there!
