Collection location: Oak Bottom Campground, Siskiyou Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: John Harlan (harlanx6)

No specimen available

I uncovered these 2 specimens while raking forest litter under an old growth D. fir. The spore print is white and they look like A. pantherina to me, but it’s a rough guess.

I’d suggest we leave this as “Amanita sp. for now”

Since there’s no specimen to check and since we know that neither “pantherina” nor “gemmata” in the strict senses of the names exist in the western US, it’s probably best to leave this observation as a “mystery of life.”

Another similar appearing Amanita is A. gemmata…but I agree this specimen looks more like A. pantherina.
