you might be interested in the set of pages on the www.amanitaceae.org site that have to do with the sections of the genus Amanita. These pages start with


From here you can go to the “?About+Amanita” page by a link and, from there, to a discussion of the sections of the genus Amanita.

If it gets puzzling, you can contact us using the (guess what) “Contact us” feature on the website.

Hope this is useful.

The bulb may be bigger in the pic due to the camera’s perspective, yeah though, great information, thanks!

I think the cap color may not be as it was originally due to drying.
