Because of the geography

this will have to be the American species rather than the European one. I notice that there have been trends toward calling this var. flavivolvata and then going back toward subsp. _flavivolvata. I’m hoping to get the new name out in 2012: Amanita amerimuscaria.

I particularly like the second picture which shows the yellow universal veil below the broadest part of the developing cap. Presumably it has seen the least sunlight and faded the least.


Nice observation!

Classic volval circles – really good documentation.
