More of what I have come to know as “Panther Caps” with warts washed off due to the rain.

#3 Destroying Angel
#2 “Panther Cap” Amanita ceciliae
I’ve come to know these as Panther Caps, but apparently “true” American Panther Caps only happen in California. The only type that should be around here is Amanita velatipes, but they never seem to be “stocky” enough in comparative photos. However today I believe I have pegged them as A. ceciliae. This would explain why a number of them did not seem to have prominent rings (or in some cases rings at all).
#6 Unidentified Amanita(?)
#06 Tiny Amanita sp.
The caps on these were no larger than a quarter.
Could be Amanita vaginata.
#02 Amanita sp.
Panther-cap-ish, but not sure what it is. It is certainly an Amanita, however.
Very stocky, growing under conifers. Pale, desaturated tan cap.
