Observation 82737: Amanita sect. Amanita

When: 2011-11-05

Collection location: Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Jared A. Martin (jaredamartin)

Specimen available

Not sure exactly what kinda trees were growing around it but I do know that there were Chanterelles near by.

side note. I was told by Rod Tulloss that the cap of this mushroom is dried out and thats what gives it that gold hue. Its not a true brown. But rather it was red to start.

That is also what the picture of the cap and spore print is showing. That print was taken very soon after finding this mushroom and only got a half a print. Which show that it had already deposited some of its spores and dried out a bit.

side side note.

I never called it Amanita Pers. The website changed it. Not sure how it got there and dont know how to change it.
