Amanita vaginata var.
glabrous brown cap with striate edge, absent annulus, white stem with minute scales, white gills, cup volva
under alder, spruce, hemlock
Thanks--that looks like an interesting site I'll have to take time to explore. I do love the Amanitas when they are in pristine condition. This variety I rarely find, so it is exciting to get such a pretty one.
Beautiful specimen by the way!
Hi! You might find a matching name here: http://www.amanitaceae.org/?section%20Va...
That seems to be a catch-all name; there appear to be several species in this area that fall into it, and I couldn't figure out which it was. Any ideas?
