Found growing below red oaks and pines in a dense mixed hardwood/coniferous forest in NW Georgia (Gordon County), US.

Not 100 percent sure of ID, so feel free to provide some guidance! My apologies for no gill shot! I misplaced that somehow!

…they fall into at least two different clusters within Amanita sect. Vaginatae. At least one of these groups is very remote (genetically) from Amanita fulva.

I would like to know more about the species that you photographed.

This species is very interesting because it has four color zones…

…and an umbo that looks as though it could become prominent after further expansion.

This should receive some study. I don’t think I have seen exactly this combination of colors before.

The observation states, “No specimen available.” Is this accurate?

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
