Collection location: Griffey Lake, Bloomington, Indiana, USA [Click for map]

No specimen available

Very flaky warts on cap – fell off really easily. Unfortunately didn’t find a more mature specimen than this. Still had partial veil covering the gills when I found it, though it fell apart in transit.

Wasn’t sure how to put this in section Lepidella. What do I have to type in for it to be recognized?

Appreciate the tip! Will keep that in mind next time I go out.

Amanita tip

Here’s a tip when you find an Amanita that has not opened up all the way. When you go out to hunt take along some plastic grocery bags and lay some paper lunch bags in the bottom of them. As you find specimens put them in the paper bags, if the cap has not opened up all the way leave it in the paper bag overnight and it will open up all the way, in the morning you will have a nice plane pileus waiting for your viewing pleasure. Remember to always store each specimen in its own paper bag if you have plans to study it further.

Some larger specimens break the bag from expanding so much.

This specimen is mature enough though.
