Description

To quote Michael Kuo "A lot of North American mushrooms are labeled "Amanita gemmata" by mushroom identifiers, and it is probable that none of them actually matches the European species first described by Swedish mycologist Elias Fries in 1838. Most North American Amanita experts treat our versions of the species as a group in need of further study. "

I found a group of mushrooms with two distinct types. Type 1 smaller and Type 2 larger, more warts on the cap. Otherwise the two types are very similar and per most field guides would be identified as Amanita gemmata. I'll keep to that unless I can find out more.

This observation is for the smaller, type1. The slender one on on the right of the 1st photo. There were two of this type, almost identical in all aspects.

Spores -
White Spore Print

Microscopy - tbd

Chemical - no reaction to KOH.

Cap - pale yellow with 1 warts. Slight bits of veil at edges. Gills slightly gray compared to the very white flesh of the cap. Cap skin peels easily. Shape - convex, almost plane. Flesh gradually thins toward edge.

Gills - slightly grayer than white flesh, could see no connecting section but probably there, adnate with deep notch.

Smell - mild mushroom

Ring - can see where ring was connected with a bit of the annulus still clinging or leaving a mark on the stem.

Stem - almost constant section, widening sum toward the base.

Base of Stem - Bulbous base with fragile volva material seen at edges and in the soil around the base.

This observation is for the larger, type 2. The large on on the upper left of the 1st photo. Also, the smallest one is I believe the same type, just immature, but robust as can be seen in the size of the bulb at the base of the stem.

Spores -
White Spore Print
[20/1/1]L (7.5-)7.7-8.8(-9.0) μm x W (4.0-)4.1-4.9(-5.0) μm, (L' = 8.3 μm, W' = 7.7 μm), Q (-1.00)1.02-1.11(-1.14)), Q'=1.08

Microscopy -
I can see that the basidium holds 4 spore.

Chemical - no reaction to KOH.

Cap - pale yellow with numerous yellowish-brown warts - P. V. remnants. Slight bits of veil at edges. Gills slightly gray compared to the very white flesh of the cap. Cap skin peels easily. Shape - convex, almost plane. Flesh gradually thins toward edge.

Gills - slightly grayer than white flesh, very thin connecting section, adnate with deep notch.

Smell - mild mushroom

Ring - can see where ring was connected in mature mushroom with a bit of the annulus still clinging. In the immature mushroom, the ring is still in place although fragile.

Stem - almost constant section, widening sum toward the base.

Base of Stem - Bulbous base with fragile volva material seen at edges and in the soil around the base.

Description

Found on a blustery day in a bunch of about 10 or 12 other A. Muscarias.

Some had been chomped by local animals but most caps were intact ranging about 6-10 inches in diameter, some with universal veil patches on the cap and some without.

Found them on a sandy berm hidden in dune grass with Sitka Spruce nearby.
