flavorubens tends to keep it yellow warts longer.

How about some reasons for choosing one of these taxa over the other?

Both species have yellow universal veil at least at first. The warts seem to remain yellow longer on this species, which would suggest that A. flavorubens is a more likely determination; however, the cap is rather pallid for that species. I don’t see strong evidence pointing one way or the other. Can someone suggest why we should settle on one name over another?


My bad.

When I saw the word “amerirubescens” my eyes quickly mis scanned it. I was not aware (or perhaps had forgotten) that an American Blusher has been split off. Now that you mention it Herbert, it seems possible there are two different types of Blushers pictured here.

Muscaria type…

A. amerirubescens is not a muscaria type. The browning of the warts in the older specimen makes me question which one it is.

what appears to be brownish staining (blushing) on the stalk. Combination of drab yellow and yellow warts favors flavorubens (flavorubescens) over muscaria types.
