Mushroom - Amanita sp. The cap was tan/light brown and there was one light tan patch near the center. The cap was sticky. The center of the cap was slightly darker in color. The margin was striate. Gills were pale tan/whitish with short gills. The stipe was white and rough. The stipe broke when I was trying to get it out of the ground and the base broke to bits, so I don’t know if there was a bulb. This mushroom was growing on the ground in moss on the edge of a woodland meadow. Geotagged,Summer,United States,amanita,fungus,mushroom Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
