    So, I looked around a lot, and have concluded that this is almost certainly an undescribed species of Amanita in section ceasarea stirps hemibapha

    I checked every one of those species out and none can possibly be it. I sent bob a message on MO, and I put it up on the other site, just so many eyes have a look and can make input :)

    oh, yea? If thats true they are liable to be a really good edible. I suspect what you are finding is Amanita jacksonii

    hey SG, did you happen to collect any samples? If not, you should get some. Alan may be interested in a print and cap sample to do some sequencing. :thumbup:

    Very nice photo. I like Amanitas. I have eaten Amanita jacksonii in West Virginia, i did not care for it. It really had a musty taste. I have read some side affects reports from it and I do not recomend others to try it but I had to try it to see how it compairs to the european caesars and they are two compleatly different things taste wise.

    thanks John, I'll pass on eating it. I don't like fish anyway, so I've never tried any amanitas, but I hope to give rubescens and vaginata a try this year :) Jusr because they are on the list :)
