Amanita fulva


Encontramos esta creciendo pegada a una pared de un refugio en el bosque.
* Sombrero de 4 a 10 cm. de diámetro, acampanado a hemiesférico, más tarde aplanado, con estrias en el margen.
* Cutícula color pardo rojizo, negruzco en el centro y más claro hacia los bordes.
* Láminas blancas apretadas y libres.
* Pie cilíndrico, esbelto, ensanchadao en la base y cubierto de finas escamas color canela.
* Volva amplia, membranosa, con tonos pardos, que envuelve la parte basal del pie.
* Esporada blanca.
* Carne blanca, con tonos amarillentos, delgada, fragil, de sabor agradable e inodora.
* Es otoñal y aparece en todo tipo de bosque. Es comestible de poca calidad, parecida a A.vaginata.

We found this one growing side by side to a wall of a refuge in the forest.
* The cap of Amanita fulva is usually free of volval remnants, 35 - 95 mm wide, umbonate at maturity, with a strongly striate margin; it is orange-brown, paler at the margin, and darker (even very dark brown) in the center. Infrequently, roughly polygonal pieces of the volva may stick to the surface.
* The gills are free, close to subcrowded, white to pale cream in mass, and up to 6.5 mm broad; the short gills are truncate, of varying length, adjacent to margin or stipe or neither.
* The stem is 80 - 150 x 6 - 20 mm, predominantly white, and exannulate, with a membranous sack-like volva at the base. The external surface of the 30 - 80 x 8 - 35 mm volva commonly takes on red-brown to rusty stains.
* The spores measure (9.0-) 10.0 - 12.5 (-19.3) x (8.2-) 9.3 - 12.0 (-15.5) µm and are globose to subglobose (rarely broadly ellipsoid) and inamyloid. Clamps are absent from bases of basidia.
* Amanita fulva is widely distributed in Europe in association with pine, spruce, birch, beech, and oak

Hi Felipe,

Nice shot here. The details are very evident and you have shown us surrounding interest with that narrow aperture. I like the central composition for this shot and the colours and light are very natural.
Well framed and good note.


Hi Felipe, lovely fungus with great details, very well done, Have a great week end, ciao Silvio

Maravillosos detalles y espléndido colorido.
Tu nota como siempre bastante densa.
Saludos, JL.

Hi Felipe,
Good to see you here again.
Another fine subject and a very good note.
It doesn't look quite as clear as some of your other work,but I think the light conditions were quite dark by the look of it.
Great to see you still posting.
Hope you are well.

  • Great
