Collection location: Texas, USA [Click for map]
Found by Psilophile82 in pine scrub forest, on the north Louisiana/ east Texas border.These are young specimens, but I observed many adult specimen that were definitely broadly umbonate. Also the striations stretch as the cap opens, covering almost half the cap when fully mature.

Would Amanita sp-AR01 and/or sp-S10 be possible here. On the occurrence map this looks like the furthest west observation of “Amanita jacksonii” by a good ways.
Only two of the specimens show orange on the skirt (partial veil) and in scraps on the stipe. I have seen the white-or-pale-stiped variant with yellow skirt and stipe-scraps before…in material sent to me from east Texas by David Lewis.
If I can locate my information on that, I’ll edit this post. It seems to me the spores differed from the variant with orange parts.
I didn’t find an exact reference to the material of which I was thinking. I checked the key to the species of Amanita stirps Hemibapha at
The bottom line is that, IF IT IS POSSIBLE, I would like to see well-dried amanitas from the site in question divided into categories by FRESH colors of the caps (be overly strict, it makes it easier on me), FRESH colors of the skirts, FRESH colors of the stems, and FRESH colors of the scraps of material left on the stems during expansion.
Amanita section Caesareae is a group in which I am very interested.
