Fruiting beneath Doug fir and pinus in decorative bark. Volva is extremely large compared to most A.pantherina I’ve encountered here in the South Puget sound area. Obviously in “button stage” most all Amanita’s have a volva that is wider than the immature cap. This specimen and others around it had volva that looked more like A.gematta or A.aprica(although I know for sure it is neither of these).
Cap: dark brown, shiny- small white patches easily removed.
Stipe: white, cottony, thick. universal veil.
Volva: collarlike, extremely bulbous- wider than cap.
Temp: mid 60’s, overcast-slight precipitation.
