This Amanita was found in primary rain forest in the Waorani territory in eastern Ecuador. Six units were found around “the tree with leaves that turn your teeth black when you chew them” Taste and odor mild, agreeable. No trace of annulus, free gill attachment. Striate cap margin. Overall height about 5 inches.
The “Collybia” had a cartiliginous stem, somewhat hygrophanous flesh, slightly bitter flavor and no noticeable smell. This was common in the primary rainforest, usually on downed logs of unknown taxa, but at least once on guava (Inge sp)
The “Entoloma” is separate from the various types of Pluteus we encountered, and from two other collections of fungi with broad, attached to adnexed gills. Slight smell, unappealing. Fragile wet flesh.
