Observation 322113: Amanita elongata Peck

Spruce/pine woods. Some birch present.

Fruit body robust with fairly thick stipe for elongata. Yellow cap/annulus fits this taxon.

Decisive factor here is spore morphology. Spores examined from 3 different areas of a print, and is all cases many ellipsoid examples were observed. Quotient: (1.25)1.3 – 1.7(1.8). Spores amyloid, (6)6.5-9(9.5) x 5-6.5.

Collected in an area where both A. elongata and A/ flavoconia have often been observed in the past.


Increase observed dimensions by 17%.
