Destroying Angel?

Recommended Posts

Okay, I do know that this is an amanita.  Always the prettiest mushrooms in the woods 😲  White almost translucent cap, no warts or powder.  Long beautiful skirt.  I thought I had taken more pictures but sometimes they just don't appear..

A key feature in Amanita ID is the base of the stalk, which you may need to dig up out of the ground. In the case of the Destroying Angels, one generally finds a basal volva consisting of a somewhat sack-like membrane with "limbs" extending upward. I'm pretty sure that's what you have here, one of the several NA Destroying Angel species. The non-staining overall white color and the skirt-like annulus are characters that point in this direction.
