Amanita populiphila
Eden Prairie, Minnesota

- Ecology: Found in two different sites with wooded areas and disturbed grassy spots. Both seemingly associated with nearby cottonwood.

- Cap: About 7cm on mature specimens. striations noticed at margin (6mm long). Convex to flat/upturned in aging specimens. Light brown color overall. Off-white to tan warts. Flesh was white.

- Gills: Appearing free from stem, but really just attached. Off-white color. Close (with some short gills).

- Stem: Approx. 12-14cm in mature. About 1.0-1.5cm wide. Fibrous and more than than off-white. No ring on stem. Very fragile off white with shades of tan/light brown volva. Stuffed center (white).

-Odor/taste: Raw potato

- Spore print: White

- Note: Thanks goes to members of the MN Mycoflora Project. A member had brought in recent specimens which helped me with ID when I found them later.
