Amanita Mushroom

Amanita sect. Amanita


This Amanita was gorgeous! It's probably just a variation of Amanita amerirubescens, but I'm not sure.


Habitat: Deciduous forest

Thanks Greg, Roy, and Neil! @Neil, I don't carry a mirror. Sometimes I can get a shot of the underside with a wide angle lens, and other times I tip the mushroom to see the gills/pores. The white mushroom is a different species of Amanita.

Excellent spotting, Christine. These photos are gorgeous. Do you carry a mirror to get photos of the underside? And the smaller white specimen is the same species and will colour-up with age?
