Notice the felted partial ring of limbus internus right where the bulb meets the stipe.

That has been a cue for me for years. It used to be that I could not recognized the species in the field without the pink to red pigments. I still need to check the material in the herbarium molecularly. Linas Kudzma is interested in pursuing sequences for Lepidellas; so we have started on the section (or I should say restarted). The current queue contains samples from some daucipes collections.


How about that!

Should have recognized them, but just didn’t. Maybe because they look more graceful here than what I am used to seeing in NJ. Oh well… Thanks, Rod!

Thanks, Rod!

Happy to have a name for this guy.

Check the Great Smoky Mountains regional checklist.

The species is pretty common in forests including oak up to areas north of New Jersey, but (so far) not Canada. The images on the WAO page formerly cited have made particularly strong color changes.

Very best,


I think you could consider Amanita daucipes.

It hasn’t fully changed to its having a pinkish volva; however, it has the typical rooting bulb and the partial rings of a felted limbus internus around the point where the stipe joins the bulb. I should develop marked reddish staining on insect- or slug- damaged parts of the bulb. You got a pair of young’uns here. I think.



Nice pix!

Very best,

I don’t think this is ravenelii. The structure of the UV on cap looks quite different. Yes, let’s wait for Rod to weigh in.

Whatever the case,

I look forward to Rod’s assessment.

could be ravenelli? I’ve found what I think to be ravenelli, but these seem less robust, more creamy-yellow.
