I think the observation shows a mixed group of species.

We can find out what is in the packet that we received.


What color?

Brown in one light, red in another. The color in the last photo can be compared with the schoolbus-yellow of the GPS receiver. Some of the other specimens collected on the same day were more brown, and at least one was more red than the mushroom pictured here. The creamy color of the underside is accurately depicted but the gills, annulus, and stem are yellower in some specimens. Dried mushrooms loose all the red color and as the disk becomes a golden brown.

Considering the the number of observations by Dan of this yellow and red species of stirps Hemibapha, and the material of red and yellow species sent to me from other parts of the US southeast, I am fairly certain that this is NOT Amanita banningiana. I think that it is best for the moment to treat it as an undescribed species. Amanita banningiana, as I know it, has a disc that is more brown than red and a volval sac that is proportionately smaller than other brightly pigmented North American taxa of stirps Hemibapha (e.g., arkansana, jacksonii). The dully pigmented A. murrilliana has a small sac that is attached to the stipe more broadly than the other taxa.


maybe banningiana…

seems a bit large for it; which color is true? brownish or red-orange?

I can’t be certain, but this may be a new species.
