Recognized by sight: Long marginal striations are not known from subgenus Lepidella even in over mature specimens…unless they are rather small, depauperate, and over mature. Striations this long suggest that the cap is thin. With all the volval material on the cap, section Caesareae would probably be an unlikely possibility. This leaves sect. Vaginatae and sect. Amanita as most probable homes for this critter.

and it was one of my last pics of the day. I was sweating profusely at this point and when I plucked it the cap just popped off of it. I’ll keep it in mind for future shots. The most I can contribute is with my photographs for identification, which I know is only one part of IDing. Right now I am finding quite a bit and all of this on our property of 2/3 acre. I started this back in September to document all the different kinds on the property but now I am beginning to realize that I may have bitten off more than I can chew. But I’m this far into it now and I’m learning as I go. I live in a “mycological” garden. We call it Tomahna.
