Observation 321655: Amanita submaculata Peck

Hemlock dominated old-growth mixed woods. Mature birch present. Smaller beech present. Oak possibly in the vicinity.

Cap surface with small eye-shaped de-pigmented depressions/streaks along the outer 40% (radially).

Basal volva consisting mainly of white “plates” (mostly remaining in substrate). This may be seen in the in-situ photo (5th photo down).

“Ball gown” annulus.

Odor pleasant but faint, difficult to describe.

Spores amyloid, 7-10 × 5-6.5.

Collected after two days of very hot weather had followed heavy rainfall. I thought I had slipped my knife beneath the basal bulb. But I didn’t dig deeply enough, and part of the bulb was consequently sliced off.

NAMP accession #58758.


Part of basal bulb missing.
