Observation 46506: Amanita Pers.

When: 2010-06-08

Collection location: Strouds Run State Park, Athens, Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dan Molter (shroomydan)

Specimen available

The bigger mushroom is just over two inches tall. It was growing a few feet down slope from a flat moss-covered ridgetop. The mushroom is probably associated with oak, but there are lots of low-growing woody perennials up there. I think they are mostly azaleas and roses.

I observed a similar mushroom in the same spot last year.

We are all made from the same material. Our form is that which determines the kind of thing we are. Last year’s mushroom was left in the woods to survive and reproduce. This year, there were two of them, so i collected one. It’s got your name all over it Rod ;)

Maybe it would help if we could see some older material in addition to these (v. nice) images…
