I thought that I saw membranous limbs on the top of the bulb, but maybe it is probably just a staining of the flesh. You saw it in the flesh; so I retract my suggestion of sect. Phalloideae.

At top magnification, the edge of the cap seems to be appendiculate. The cap is indeed more flesh and lumpy than in a lot of amanitas. Can you get a spore print? I see the mushroom was growing near pine…so a mycorrhizal taxon is a possibility….

Very best,


No basal sac, just a bulb.

It didnt really strike me as an amanita. It seemed to lack that mythical amanita look. I’ll get more details when i find one again.
