Amanita jacksonii-ish

Common Name: None

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood forests

Spore Color: White

Gill Color: Orange-yellow to yellow

Comments: 

This mushroom is very similar to Amanita jacksonii, but lacks the reddish to orange pattern on the stem - even when the mushroom is young. It may be a new species according to Amanita expert Rod Tulloss at Amanitaceae.org. Also, the cap often contains more yellow in the cap, epecially towards the margin, as compared to A. jacksonii

Red to Red-orange cap and a white volva at the base. This will all be sorted out in the future.

Lookalikes:  

Amanita banningiana has more orange-yellow tones to the cap and a pale yellow stem without an orange pattern. Amanita arkansana also has more of an orange-brown cap as well, but with white gills.  There is also a very similar species that I am calling Amanita jacksonii-ish that lacks the orange patched pattern going up the stem.
