it is a curious amanita. hopefully you can find them at all ages next time. We don’t get A. spreta in the West, so I am not familiar with it in an unopened form and again your photo, to my eye, does not show striations. But they may well be there, and in that case, it would indeed fit into section Caesarea.

We look forward to seeing more pictures! Thanks for posting your OZ finds on MO…saves us a heckuva lot of travel expenses! ;)

Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to look at them closely before my dogs knocked them to the ground and trampled all over them. But there were a few more growing where I found these so I can go and get a much better look and more photos.

would be my call if it was in Eastern North America.

can’t be a vaginate amanita either…with that annulus.

I am not seeing a striate margin (typical for section Caesarea). Did you see one in hand?
