A. Longipes

Thank you Rod and Alan for your help, it fits Amanita longipes, no noticeable smell, cap and stipe of young specimens are floccose, no staining on bore holes. A few more pictures were uploaded today.

The flocculence on the stem suggests there would have been flocculence on the cap…maybe…

The caps of immature specimens for warts, it seems like I remember the caps being bald, smooth and glossy. The snails eat them up pretty quick.

Here’s a guess.

This could be a species of section Lepidella with all the warts washed away. The gills are slightly attached (which is plausible in the section). The bulb is at an angle to the stipe. The shape of the bulb, the sandy coastal plain type environment, the presence of oak, the powdery stipe, etc. suggest Amanita longipes.


Very best,

Rod Tulloss
