Observation 163575: Amanita sect. Lepidella sensu Bas

This specimen was found on the higher part and dryer section of the Eucalyptus forest. At first impression I thought the fungi was suffering from insect infestation. What I actually discovered was that although the pileus was misshapen the physical condition of the remainder of the fungi was firm and in good condition. The gills seemed to have come away from the inside/underside of the cap and took on the appearance of twisted wood shavings. The pileus in particular had an unusual but not foul or unpleasant aroma. (It smelt like the small black ants we have here that when squashed give off a strong aroma.) The smell was definitely not aniseed. This was a single specimen here and the next similar specimen was not found for another 50 meters but in similar habitat.
I will load it as a separate file.
