Amanitas (pics)
    #2102877 - 11/13/03 08:26 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I've been in the woods lately and found some interesting amanita specimens.
First two pics i think they are either Amanita pachycolea or Amanita constricta, they are 15cm tall.
Last two pics i think they are Amanitas but i can't find which ones, bigest one was 20-25 cm tall. Any ideas ?









Some bonus pics, huge puffballs !

I think the unknown Amanitas could well be Amanita phalloides. I have never saw one of those and i thought they were a bit smaller .

For the first one, the lack of a ring, striate margin, and membranous saccate volva place it in Section Vaginatae. The most similar species to my eyes is Amanita pachycolea. The volva of Amanita constricta usually flares from where it adheres in a ring to the stem, which yours doesn't appear to do.

The others look like Amanitas, but we need to see the volvas to start identification. If you have some Tincture of Iodine, that would help for doing a test to see if the spores are amyloid. You can get it from the first aid section at many grocery stores. The ring on the stem tells us that they're going to probably be on one of the other sections of the genus.

Are you on the west coast?

Happy mushrooming!

that's interesting, it looks a bit like the phalloides, hard to see.

It doesn't look like,(hey, foto trick us sometimes)but it's possibly a pantherina or a velosa in its late stage and washed with the strong rains that have been "attacking" Portugal

nevertheless, I just pointed the pantherina hypotesis because is the only amanita(besides the muscaria) that I know in Portugal.
