Observation 286969: Amanita limbatula Bas

When: 2017-08-12

Collection location: Hunlock Creek, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

Specimen available

This was found in the exact same 1/2 square yard area as obs 142433 . The one in this present observation (8-12-17) is an underdeveloped button that had been damaged, probably by a slug or millipede (see 3rd photo). The yellow stain developed on the cut context over the course of a few minutes, but initially there was some yellow stain near the tunnel that apparently had served as point of entry for the insect/slug. This implies the possibility that the yellow is connected to a secretion that originated with the insect/slug.

Only two spores found; 10-11 × 6-7.

Material has been preserved.
