A fly agaric button photographed in Far North Bicentennial Park in Anchorage, Alaska. Fly agaric is quite abundant in and around south-central Alaska during the summer months. They're also mercifully easy to identify. Heh.

Description

Kudos to kueda for pointing me in the right direction with genus Pholiota. There are a few pholiota species in Alaska. After consulting with Gary Laursen and R. D. Seppelt's book, Common Interior Alaska Crytograms, I'm pretty sure this is Pholiota aurivella. Their description pars with my observational experience. Very nice!
