This possible taxon (if it proves distinct) would be the only one in the genus Amanita other than A. pelioma that can exhibit a blue-green color in its volval material (usually on the stipe). Hence, it is of interest to see a comparison of the sporographs of the two "taxa," below.

Spore data for collections provisionally identified as: Amanita sp-M34 Tulloss
Each spore data set is intended to comprise a set of measurements from a single specimen made by a single observer;
and explanations prepared for this site talk about specimen-observer pairs associated with each data set.
Combining more data into a single data set is non-optimal because it obscures observer differences
(which may be valuable for instructional purposes, for example) and may obscure instances in which
a single collection inadvertently contains a mixture of taxa.
