ooooo, an amanita dust-up!!!

I’m in!

Seriously, this peachy amanita does bear a resemblence to the lovely and striking persicina. What strikes me about this sighting is more the location in Ohio…outside of its known range. But that could well be a function of its resemblence to muscaria and the general lack of amanitologists. MO has really helped us to look harder at some of these collections from here and there. And mushrooms do move around.

But without a specimen, this one will have to remain at a fairly low confidence level.

BTW, there is certainly a partial veil, which “grows up” to be an annulus, in the photo. I believe that persicina has a friable annulus, so it often gets left behind as the mushroom matures, but it is indeed present when the mushroom is young. If the bulb had a bit more peachy color I would be better convinced of persicina. Cap color in the muscaria group is so darned variable…

They are close

See my comments under 48391. I might not know persicina when I see it. You probably are much more familiar with it as it is common in the SE.

My mistake but…

My mistake by not expanding the second pic, but it sure looks like the partial veil is around the base in the first pic, maybe part of it?

What are you trying to say Walt by posting Rods description? Please do not think I am being rude by asking you that, I had some trouble it seemed like the other day for asking why to someone, guess they though I was some kinda hardcore ID’er no sorry I have lots to learn.

A good bit of Rods description from his page fits this specimen, also not all specimens are how they are described in a field guide.

Peach colored pileus, peachy hues on the stipe, annulus hanging around its ankles, weak to no concentric rings, peach colored fly agaric?

No Annulus

How can you call it A. amerimuscaria with no annulus?
I could understand if it was an aged specimen and the annulus had fallin off, but this one clearly never developed.
