This Amanita sp. also fruited in early-mid October. It had a light orange cap with white patches and is probably either an orange variant of Amanita muscaria or a look-alike. The caps of the fully opened mushrooms were 6 to 7 inches in diameter. These mushrooms occurred in fairly open wooded areas at the edge to the immediate north of the parking lot at the Fishing Area and just south of the bridge from the parking lot (Segment 13). I didn’t see them deeper in the woods where I found the previous amanitas.
