Single fb with cap 5.9 cm across and stipe 11.0 cm long.
Looks like base volva was quite friable.
Spores not amyloid and ~ 9.0-12.1 X 8.0-11.4 microns(11 measured) and mostly subglobose.
Not much to go on here(?).

Yep. “Definite ‘could be.’”

As more data develops, we’ll see where it goes.

You’re welcome, as always.

Very best,

Amanita “sp-T23” does look like a definite “could be” at this point.
I was a little lazier than usual on the spore measurements for this one, not making a real good slide on the first try and just going with a few.

I got Q values of 1.18 and 1.25 from two of pictured spores that are in side view.

Still a little low, but we could consider sp-T23 perhaps. Spore length seems OK.

See tabular spore size/shape key in this checklist:

Very best,


Some of the spores in your photo are broadly ellipsoid.

Maybe there is something that can be done.

Very best,
