First Amanita Muscaria of 2021

First Amanita of the Season! Sept/17/21

Today I found the first Amanita of the season. It is Amanita Muscaria Var. Guesowii. I found it off a busy road under some deciduous trees (I think they were pines). It seemed a little early in the season but I guess not. I have seen some people online finding them recently. I am currently dehydrating it at 160f/71c. There are the only type I see in this area of northeastern us, or Pennsylvania. They have grown to all different sizes, some are like 6 inches across. I always find them with pines and deciduous trees.
