Observation 28284: Amanita novinupta Tulloss & J. Lindgr.

When: 2009-11-13

Collection location: Bon Tempe Reservoir, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

I’m calling these Amanita novinupta-early. They look like the ones I found up near Santa Rosa last year (MO # 5264) also in November. They have most of the characteristics of the standard A. novinupta that we normally find in this area in late winter. However, the reddish “blushing” is minimal or almost non-existent and the bulbs tend to be more consistently elliptical.
The spores are amyloid and ~ 8.2-10.1 X 7.0-8.0 microns.

great but I’m positive they were all found in the same general area.
I did use two different cameras and the photos were all taken on the same day.
My notes say there were at least 5 fruit-bodies.
I sent this collection off to Dimitar a couple of years ago and he may eventually have more to say about them.

Are all these fruitbodies from the same spot?

There seems to be at least a few different collections, maybe from different areas?

One of the photos (64851) looks kind of like Santa Cruz’ mystery non-blusher, but the others look pretty good for A. novinupta
