Indeed that is an amazing mushroomphoto! And well spotted characteristic difference! That can help when you use an identificationkey. Though, microscopic analysis is also useful to exclude all doppelgängers.
Thank you! I prefer the first one I spotted: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/102... but they clearly look different. The surface between the "spikes" look smooth.
Hi! Very welcome! I'm learning too through this, I see a lot of false naming and unidentified mushrooms, especialy amanitas, which I happen to love! There are so many forms and appearences of one single mushroom, but if you see lots, and loooots of them, you'll start to recognize some specific charactaristics. I'm teaching and learning along the way! Great catch by the way!
Thank you for the info, very useful! I learn a lot thanks to you.
Maybe it's Amanita virgineoides, looking at the spike-pattern on the cap, but I can be wrong. It is definately an Amanita from the section Lepidella, but there are so many Lepidellas, you have to check this with microscope. http://fungi.sakura.ne.jp/ajiwai_kinoko/...
