Fragile volva was white

Thanks for the tip. The volva was very fragile indeed and broke away as I uncovered it. I didn’t really notice any coloration other than white.

To determine this species, we really need to see the base of the stem.

One unusual characteristic of this mushroom is the large chunk of yellowish volva that remained for a long time under the skirt-like partial veil Does your camera tend to reduce red? Could that mass of pale yellow been pale orangish? (Maybe that is stretching things too much.)

An unusual pair of pictures. Unfortunately, in the genus Amanita, it really is important to carefully extract the base of the stem carefully from the ground (as if you were digging a fragile piece if ancient pottery) and get some nice well-focused shots of it.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
