Found under oak and hackberry with some pine in the area. Growing from sandy soil. Amanita rhacopus is a possibility but I’m going with Amanita texasorora based on my Texas location.

is much more common in Texas than rhacopus, although both are there. On the basis of probability it is a good choice. Since our collection from Texas are concentrated around the big thicket, dried material from Bonham would give us a better feel for ranges of one or both species.

Very best,
