So that means there was a limbate volva at first. This opens the possibility that the species could be in the gemmatoid part of Amanita section Amanita. The image does suggest A. praecox, but the annulus seems to be persisting rather a long time. I recall (now) that when I first found praecox, I sometimes found it with a somewhat “pantherinoid” bulb; this was very confusing to me because I had just found Amanita albocreata for the first time: I was thinking, “Could it have two different cap colors? Could it sometimes have an annulus?” Finally, I figured out that the sometimes annulate, yellow-capped entity was something different (i.e., praecox).


only one mushroom

This mushroom was growing by itself on a mossy area under oak. After shooting the first photo I dug it up with a knife and laid it down for the other shots. It’s all one mushroom.

Some flimsy volva material like that in A. vaginata can be seen in the first photo, but when I dug the mushroom up, that bit broke apart leaving what can be seen in the latter photos.

The volvas don’t all seem to have the same form.

The top picture seems to have a ragged limbate volva while the lower pictures have distinctly pantherinoid “rolled sock” type volval remains at the top of the bulb, I think.

Reminds me of these observations.


Check out the base on the specimens at the bottom of this pic.
