Visit to Fundy National Park

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Visit to Fundy National Park

Saw several of these on a walking trail near Alma, New Brunswick, whilst on vacation. Is it a type of Amanita?

Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

As the site name implies, we deal with fungi from the United Kingdom, and fungi from overseas are not necessarily our strong point!

However, I think your fungus may be "Yellow Patches" - Amanita flavoconia.

It's not one we have in the UK, but it is known from Fundy National Park.

See: - https://inaturalist.ca/taxa/125389-Amanita-flavoconia

Regards,
Mike.
