Thank you, RET! I don’t have a dried sample or the necessary equipment to view the spores, but these are currently growing in my front yard.I appreciate the links to alternative names for the mushrooms. Thanks!

Do you have spores measurements? Or dried material?

There are several relatively large species of section Phalloideae in central Atlantic seabord states in the eastern U.S.

Some links to examples are:

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita%20amerivirosa

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita%20suballiacea

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita%20sturgeonii

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita%20elliptosperma

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita%20sp-S05

Studies over the last several decades have shown that A. virosa is Eurasian and doesn’t occur in the U.S.

You can check these regional, illustrated checklists, which should provide some suggestions.

http://www.amanitaceae.org?US%20-%20NJ%20and%20PA

http://www.amanitaceae.org?US%20-%20Great%20Smokies

All the listed links are liable to name change, change in available data, etc.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
