    Just thought I would open up my first post on this forum with some gorgeous A. aprica.

    Howdy to all my friends who are already here, and to any new ones I may make!

    wow, you guys have such fungal diversity there, I rarely see any amanita's in Kentucky :( Half the ones I do see are big white and warty, and all I can say for them is Amanita sect. lepidella? :hehehe: What I find interesting about your specimen is the collar on the basal bulb, it reminds me so much of a panther, are they in the same section?

    Yes, but I haven't been there in ages. It shouldn't be too hard to connect me to my name from there.

    dang, I like that site you linked, that is one complete set of taxonomy. Probably the lengthiest I've seen for any species on any site :)
