I have since received reports of two other possible phalloides sightings at the Park, also under Bishop Pine. Neither could be confirmed by me. One was seen by an observer at the Gerstle Cove Campground on Saturday (but we couldn’t refind it), the other seen last year sometime, but not collected or reported at the time.

The pine host is the big news here.
