I can’t recall ever having seen a lepidella with pink gills (or any Amanita for that matter).

Yes, I agree.

I was able to post those pictures due to the kindness of Katrina Syme and Dr. Elaine Davison who both took their pictures in the state of Western Australia. I wonder if Tim Cannon has also seen a pink-gilled lepidella. Tim?

on your website, Rod! It looks like pink is only the beginning, that the pink darkens as it matures.

Of course this is outside my geographical area of greatest feel-at-home-ness, Martin; however, yes, there is a pink-gilled Lepidella in Australia. Lucy emailed me that she was going to post these pix, but this is my first look. She had a pink-gilled Lepidella from the same site just a short time back; and, at the time, we thought it might be Amanita carneiphylla.

seems like a safe bet with the photo of the top and the bulb. The partial veil and pink gills are unusual, but not unheard of, right Rod?
