Amanita longipes

Common Name: Flat-Root Amanita

Synonyms:

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwoods 

Gill Color: White to cream

Spore Color: White

Comments: 

It is going to have free white gills. Slight remnants of a partial veil. Also most of the stem has a powdery surface texture. Especially near the base. The surface of the cap has several remnants of the universal veil left as patches. It has a root that goes into the ground. There is a slightly bulbuous base and the root extends down into the ground and sort of flattens out as it gets deeper. This root also tends to bend under the surface. As with most new mushrooms you find, dont just pick it at the ground, but be sure to dig up as much of the base as you can (Especially Amanitas).
