Collection location: Yosemite National Park, California, USA [Click for map]
This is one of the commonly distributed gemmatoid/pantherinoid Amanita in the PNW. We have a very good stability in this species across the West as the sequences match to the dot. I personally refer to this one as A. gemmata complex Genotype 3. The look on this Sierran collection is not very typical – I have more telling photos from the coast.
The color of the pileus suggests something pantherinoid, but the evanescent veil (almost always lost) made me use the gemmata epithet. Otherwise, they are right in between gemmata and pantherina…
These guys fruit in the spring too!!
Mike Davis and I are scrutinizing this group very intensely in California and hope to have something tangible within the year end.
