Observation 81336: Amanita flavorubens (Berk. & Mont.) Sacc.

When: 2010-08-25

Collection location: Montgomery Co., Maryland, USA [Click for map]

Who: Martin Livezey (MLivezey)

No specimen available

Shiny Dark Yellow cap with a little universal veil /warts near the margin of the big guy. No other photos. I believe the little we can see of the stipe supports the possibility of a ring. So for those of you who have seen one, does this look like A. phalloides to you?

A. flavorubens grew about fifteen feet from this mushroom in 2011. I suspect you are right.

I guess I am happy that it is not A. phalloides. I took this picture very early in my (grab the violin) career and it has haunted me for this reason. Thanks for clearing it up!

no warts with phalloides

phalloides has a membranous universal veil that either tears cleanly, leaving no remnant on the cap, or leaves at most a very thin patch of material.

as you know, it would be a big help to see the rest of this mushroom! ;)
Could be an amanita in section validae, with warts and that yellow color.
