Thanks for the comment. I have a different collection of yellow/orange ’’Amanita’’ that I dried and saved for you; will post an observation here soon.

Either a yellow variant of A. muscaria or a yellow variant of A. amerimuscaria; unfortunately, we don’t know enough about geographic range to make a guess for a specimen from Saskatchewan … you are right smack in our zone of least knowledge (no DNA sampling yet (that I know of) and at least one Amanita morphologist [me] knows squat about the morphology in your region). I can separate the two species morphologically with a scope and will do so in return for quality dried material from Saskatcheawan. Also, will submit such a yellow specimen for DNA sampling along with a group of yellow specimens from many other North American collecting sites.

Very best,
