Powder Cap Amanita (Amanita farinosa). This Powder Cap Mushroom, or Mealy Cap, has a white flesh, small, fragile cap, and cylindrical stalk above a slightly enlarged, rounded base. It generally appears on sandy soil in open, decidious woods or along trails or old roads in late spring to fall in the Eastern U.S. (McKnight & McKnight 223-4).
