Amanita flavorubens

Common Name: Yellow American Blusher

Synonyms: Amanita flavorubescens

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwoods 

Gill Color: White

Spore Color: White 

Comments: 

One of the more common Amanitas, this mushroom is generally smaller and has a yellow cap, yellow patches on the cap, and a yellow around the volva. It is also one of the "blushers," so you can confirm your ID by looking for red staining where the mushroom is damaged, especially near the base.

Lookalikes:  

Amanita rubescens is similar, but the cap is not yellow. Amanita flavoconia is also similar, but does not blush red.
