Amanita persicina

Dark orange, peach, pink, yellow, and blush colored mushrooms with pale orange to white veil remnants on pilei (caps). Pilei are highly variable in color and texture. Gills are cream to white and crowded with occasional short gills. Stipe is white and covered in veil remnants. A large, distinctly sac-like volva transitions into stipe fairly smoothly. Younger specimens still have white veils in tact. Older specimens have skirt-like annuli. Amanita persicina was once grouped in as a variety of Amanita muscaria, but DNA evidence shows A. persicina and A. muscaria as two distinct species. Habitat: Growing in a grassy field in a public park in Northwest Georgia (Floyd County), US.
