This small amanita was found under birch with oak nearby. The yellow cap on several specimens ranged from 7-8cm in diameter with a darker UV remnants toward the center. The stipes ranged from 12-18 cm long with a yellow PV, and a white basal bulb with yellow UV remnants forming a ring above the bulb. The spores were weakly amyloid with a Q value of 1.38-1.56. The odor was not remarkable. I found larger specimens of a very similar mushroom in the same area last year.

Since levistriata has not been found in New Jersey, my guess is that this is more likely to be Amanitasp-57.”

Also, one could compare

Very best,
