Observation 16289: Amanita Pers.
When: 2007-11-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This on was growing in Nothofagus forest in SE Victoria; cap was about 5-6cm across, the stalks deeply rooted and it was fragile. It smelled BAD, (rotting meat maybe) I was trying to dry it on the defroster on the dash of my car but the smell was way too bad and it went out the window.

Did not come up with anything…

I spent a couple of hours on this, but did not come up with a name. It was somewhat profitable in that I revised the A. farinacea page on the Amanita Studies page as a result.

Looking for suggestions from Oz, please.

What a considerate mushroom!

Noah, obvioiusly this mushroom had a serious inferiority complex concerning its odor. It leaped out the window in consideration for your sensibilities. I didn’t know they had it in them.

It looks like a species of sect. Lepidella. To date most Australian material of sect. Lepidella falls into a small number of Bas’ stirpes. Working.
