Observation 495: Amanita pseudobreckonii N. Siegel & C.F. Schwarz nom. prov.

When: 2004-11-22

Collection location: Wilder Ridge, Humboldt Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Nathan Wilson (nathan)

No specimen available

Notes:
The cap color was nearly identical to that of A. velosa. However, the volva is wrong as is the season. Also there were no clear striations. It was growing under a large shrub that I think was a wax murtle over the spring that we’ve always called the Frog Pond.

After seeing http://mushroomobserver.org/1777 I concluded that A. breckonii is probably the correct name.

Looks like A. breckonii to me; it even has the double veil showing.
