We do not yet have DNA from this material.

Very best,


The photos I have of murinoflammeum show a more chestnut colored cap.

I have no idea of the variation of color that is possible in the cap of the species. That’s one of the things I hope to find out by further study of your material.

Very best,


We are continuing with a project to sequence many species of sect. Amanita.

As a part of this project, I’ve come back to this material. I think it is probably in the group that includes A. murinoflammeum and A. umbrinella and, probably, some similar species known from Nothofagus forest in southern South America. (Some of the truffle-like amanitas of SW Australia also may be related to this group.)

Since A. umbrinella has a very dark cap, I’m going to suggest murinoflammeum as a possible ID for the observation. I’m very grateful that you sent us material.

Very best,


Thanks Lucy,

This material has been accessioned into Rod’s herbarium and sampled for DNA sequencing.

This one is one I’d like to see, Lucy
