It was a great find and very good shot.

Unfortunately I did not make a collection of this.
Thankyou for your comments, without looking at the spores it is hard to know for sure but it sure does seem to fit the description of A. armeniaca.

Hello, Heidi.

Did you happen to dry this?

If so, would you be willing to share part of the collection with me?

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

How about Amanita armeniaca A. E. Wood?

This seems quite similar. The type and other original material came from New South Wales.

Very best,


Remarkable that this collection comes from New South Wales.

Thanks for the messages that were sent to me about this. I’m not (particularly) proud. You can tell me I’m wrong on-line. Let’s say you can tell me one time for each mistake. :)

OK, a little more thought and digging. I have an idea.

Very best,

The gray warts on top of a bed of orange powder is a pretty good marker for roseitincta in the southeastern US.
