Amanita calyptroderma is recognized by a combination of characters:
an orange-brown cap (in the typical form), with a thick white universal veil patch
and conspicuously striate margin,
hollow stipe, and a thick white volva cup which stands erect from stipe.
From Michael Beug:
Remember, there are old mushroom hunters,
there are bold mushroom hunters,
but there are no old bold mushroom hunters.
