It was the only mushroom that was found in a dry pine forest that was periodically burnt. Other mushrooms were found in a swampy area of the creek. However, during fall there are many various Amanita in the pine forest too, and I hope to be better prepared for collecting their samples.

I have not heard of it previously from Texas; however this might be Amanita chrysoleuca.

This is not A. levistriata becuase its volva looks olive agains the cap color. It is not so strikingly yellow.

Material that is similar to A. chrysoleuca has been reported from Florida. The only way to deal with this is to have dried material for study.

The photographs are very striking. The cap fits Pegler’s description although the rather broad white margin may not be a fit. Lots of data needed!

Very best,


I think this may be something new. I’ll need to look again tomorrow.
