When: 2010-09-05

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

45.801999°N 77.136426°W

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

An unidentified Amanita from Zone 47 close to 48. Could be associated with pine, Balsam fir, birch, maple, or aspen. Spruce less likely.

It’s white but the resemblance to a destroying angel ends there. The cap has warts — drab greyish warts — and the stipe base is more typical of the muscarioid taxa than of the phalloideae. There is a sizable ring about 3/4 of the way up the stipe and no significant bulb at the stipe base (final photo). Standard-issue Amanita gills: free, white, and plenty of lamellulae.
