When the material gets to Roosevelt (if it’s pretty soon), there will be someone interested in looking at it under the scope.


Everything is coming up A. roseitincta for me!

Habitat looks to be around pines – recent rain washed off the velar warts from the cap. Remnants of pinkish-yellowish colored velar material on edge of cap and at base of stipe.

I’m always looking for the supposedly red-staining A. maculans of Murrill, but that shouldn’t have a striate cap margin.


Very best,

the same thing.
i remembered A. roseitincta from last year and thought this looked very similar.
the veil actually fell off, but i do not remember noting any pigmentation.
i believe it was white.

The bottom of the partial veil looks white in the top pic.

Is that correct?

I was thinking of A. roseitincta which would be pigmented on the bottom of the partial veil (pinkish-orangish volval material).


salmon-colored volva.

Is that salmon-colored soil or salmon-colored volva?

A striate cap margin and (apparently) a cothurnate volva at the top of the bulb, suggests Amanita sect. Amanita.
