Amanita phalloides?

Recommended Posts

First amanita ive spotted in Louisiana.  What do you guys think?  Amanita phalloides?   Mixed hardwood/pine.  Cap 2 inches.  Partial veil.  Yellowish-green tint to cap.  4.5 inches tall

Interesting Amanita observation. Probably a good one to post onto MO. 

My impression is this is not Amanita phalloides. The grayish margin on the ring (annulus/partial veil) is not something I would expect with an Amanita species classified within section Phalloideae. I think this probably represents a species from section Validae. In particular, the Amanita lavendula group (formerly called by the European species name A. citrina) looks like a good bet here. There are a few different NA species in this group. Among possibly others are   http://www.amanitaceae.org/?Amanita+lavendula  and  http://www.amanitaceae.org/?Amanita+cornelihybrida  .

And do not eat it unless you want to try out a liver transplant within the next 1-2 weeks
