…I’ll be sending the yellow, red, and white Amanita whatevertheyares to Rod so we can see what’s up here.

It would be great to check the DNA of this find directly against your red capped finds of possible A. muscaria var. persicina.

In the PNW, where the red and yellow forms represent different species, the pure yellow form is Amanita muscaria while the red/orange form is A. amerimuscaria nom. prov.
