Coker's Amanita (Amanita cokeri)

September 30th -  October 5th, 2014. 

This mushroom emerged on the shoulder of the road outside our place. It looked like it would be a specimen mushroom so I decided to photograph it each day until it opened completely.

Closer views of the tubercles on the cap

The cap grew so large that it split the stem. I’ve never seen this in a mushroom before.
