collected for RET
I’m stuck between A. albocreata and A. velatipes now. I will say that there are MANY of this yellowish white Amanita sect. Amanita out in the park right now.

We have received the dried specimen. Thank you. It is being accessioned in Rod’s herbarium.

I’ve only seen albocreata in the Smokies under Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis).

It is most common under the above tree. I have seen it once under Balsam Fir in Newfoundland.

Very best,

checklist. I don’t think any of these that I’ve seen have been truly exannulate. It is a very fragile annulus that ends up gone quite a bit as it comes through the pine straw.

Amanita albocreata is exannulate from the get go.

So this is more likely to be something else in sect. Amanita.

Very best,
