On a madrone covered, steep hillside – there were many more growing around these. I needed a WAY bigger bag.

These coccora were totally delicious.
I see no reason an expert would use a microscope to differentiate toxic Amanitas from edible ones. There are enough macromorphological features in these pictures to know that these are safe to eat. The hollow stem, striate margin, large patch of UV tissue on the top of the cap, and cap color show with 100% certainty that these are not one of the toxic species. Make sure you do not have a mixed collection by verifying that all of the stems are hollow. The deadly species have a solid stem.
