Here’s the oddball text:

Family: Amanitaceae
Genus: Amanita
Subgenus: Amanita

The section was originally determined to be Amanita sect. _Vaginatae, but a question has arisen (at least for RET) as to whether Amanita sect. Amanita should be considered. On the other hand, the question arises from what may be entirely superficial similarities.

This latter question has arisen because of increasing familiarity with dark-stiped taxa with ochraceous staining saccate volvas in section Amanita known only from Nothofagus forests in Argentina and Chile. Eventually DNA studies may get to treating such taxa. At the moment, the issue might be decided morphologically by well-dried collections of A. protecta that include multiple stages of development from button to mature accompanied by photographs of sectioned “buttons” and whole buttons. We need to know if the stipe always lacks a bulb and if the fruiting body develops centrally in the primordium (as does A. vaginata) or eccentrically upward (as does A. muscaria).
