Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

45.811019° -77.136748°

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Zone 02 also had some Amanita amerimuscaria, but not in the sector of its periphery where I’ve seen them before. Instead, three immature specimens of about equal ages were growing in the interior of the Zone under mixed trees, in the pine-dominated half (not, interestingly, the aspen-dominated half).

Maybe you should ask yourself why Rod isn’t including any species from the east in his description of A. amerimuscaria. Furthermore, Amanita muscaria var. guessowii this is the name he recommends to use for now for the eastern taxon. I suggest you learn some manners, Noah. Spend less time insulting people and more time studying. lol

Don’t tell me — the taxonomists gone on another redecorating binge?
