Amanita muscaria var. formosa
    #4451919 - 07/25/05 07:43 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I was walking in a place where I thought I saw Amanitas before and I came across two specimens of a yellow capped mushroom. For informational purposes I was in the north western corner of Connecticut and the temperature was in the high seventies on a sunny day with a big downpour a few days prior. I found these mushrooms in a pine forest with a bed of many years worth of pine needles. The first specimen had a very yellow cap but no warts (I thought probably washed off) and white gills/stem but I could not find a collar on the stem due to worm damage on the stem. The mushroom did have a bulbous bottom. The second specimen I found a few hundered feet from the first in the same floor material and had the same yellow cap and white gills/stem. This mushroom did have some small warts, brownish in color (more distinct ones were probably washed away), the stem was in tact and I saw a collar, this mushroom also had a bulbous base.

Are there any other mushrooms that these could be other than Amanita muscaria var. formosa. I know these would grow in my area and saw four supporting features (yellow cap, warts, collar, and bulbous base). I will go back to try and find better specimen and shoot some photos.

Any input would be much appreciated.

Hi, I am not qualified to help you because I am just getting used to amanitas myself. However, I suggest you post a photo. And what kind of volva does it have? There are basically four forms and that sorts out a lot right away. And what was the color and texture of the stem? How big was it? See your guide for more variations.

Yes, it could be a different amanita species. Try to work on some photos if possible.. and keep in mind we need to see the whole base of the stem, so it may actually require some digging to get it out intact.
