Description:

In sandy woodland with conifers and occasional oaks. Did not get enough info to make a proper ID beyond Amanita unless the new amanita book can suggest anything. Does not appear to be any hint of reddening and the stem is rather thick. Note its not a proper ring but just where the stem has been damaged and rolled up.

Identifications

No identification made yet.

Yes I know sorry, can't remember why I did not take the extra photos, possibly had very little time and was wanting to document as many species as possible before they cut down the trees in that area, also I was much more interested in this little thing that was growing next to it
