Amanita rubescens var. alba

Common Name: Eastern America White Blusher

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: White

Gill Color: White 

Comments: 

This species is essentially a white version of Amanita rubescens. Look for the slightly enlarged base, ring on the stem, and white patches on the cap. All parts of the mushroom will stain red.

Lookalikes:  

Amanita rubescens is very similar, but has brownish tones to the cap. The Amanita bisporigera/A. elliptosperma/A. sp S04 species group will appear similar, but do not bruise red.
