Observation 49725: Amanita volvata group

When: 2010-08-05

Collection location: Nehantic State Forest, Lyme, Connecticut, USA [Click for map]

Who: Bill (boletebill)

No specimen available

Ecology note: These small A. volvata type mushrooms all fruited at the edge of a gravel forest road that had been scraped flat by a bulldozer. The road was eroded this Spring and about two weeks ago was re-graded with a big bulldozer. I observed over 100 of these mushrooms (and collected about 20) all fruiting where the new scraped edged had met up with the old edge of the old roadbed. The Amanita fruited over a strech of road 4.5 miles long and were generally spread out along that strech in equal numbers. There’d be 2-3 here and 3-4 there and 100 yards down the road 4-5 or 2-3 and so on all the way through the forest.
