Comments
Amanita franchetii is recognized by a brown to yellow brown cap with yellowish warts, a yellow margined annulus, and a scaly/warted volva. It is found regularly each season, but seldom in large numbers. We need a new name for this taxa, since according to Rod Tulloss "the name 'A. franchetii' is mistakenly applied to an otherwise undescribed taxon that is commonly found in California".
