ID Help


Recommended Posts

For future reference, when collecting a mushroom for ID discussion, it's advisable to try to extract the entire mushroom including the base of the stem that may be buried. 

The above recommendation is especially important for genus Amanita. These type mushrooms are often IDed (at least partially) according the structure of the base of the stipe. In the case of the ones seen in the photos, I see a small membranous brownish patch near the base of the one stem. This points toward the Amanita fulva group (Amanita series Fulvae). Also, the distinct marginal striations (grooves) on the cap supports this proposal, as does the light-brown/tawny cap color. This group of species has been extensively researched by amanita expert Dr. Rodham Tulloss. A somewhat surprising finding has been that the species Amanita fulva (once presumed to be a strictly Eurasian taxon) is found in eastern North America. I'm not sure if this species has been documented as far south as FL. There are a few other NA species in the "Tawny Grisette" group.    http://www.amanitaceae.org/?series+Fulvae
