Most of the mushrooms are gone the next day, probably eaten by the wildlife, so no sorry. Does Dr. Cripps work at a university?

Very cool…

Is it possible that it can be collected and dried?

Do you know of Dr. Cathy Cripps who is based in Montana?

There is some suggestion of Amanita porphyria in the photographs (some graying on the partial veil and a bulb that suggests the porphyria-bulbosa (“citrinoid”) group in Amanita section Validae.

Dr. Cripps would probably have information about the amanitas that have been collected in Montana in the past and would be very much worth contacting if you’re interested in pursuing Montana Amanita identifications.
