A large fruiting area in a grassy clearing of A. muscaria subsp. flavivolvata beneath Douglas fir and western hemlock that I have been monitoring all season. The original flush was stalled by heavy snowfall a week or so ago. New fruiting bodies/buttons still popping here.

Note: B. edulis var grand-edulis are fruiting within 20 feet of this large shiro of Amanita. This is the third time in the last two seasons where the anecdotal reports of A. muscaria and B. edulis fruiting simultaneously from the same mycorrhizal host has been personally confirmed. This interaction and co-mingling mycorrhizal relationship of two separate species together has been evident with this group of trees for not only the amanita and porcini here, but also for co-fruitings of Suillus and Gomphidious, in addition to the earlier Chalciporus piperatus and Amanita muscaria subs. flavivolvata observed earlier here in the season.

Elevation: Sea level.
