Observation 169006: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2014-07-04

Notes: Small fungi found with small section of pileus displayed . Fungi was mainly covered by leaves and eucalyptus forest soil. Fungi had rather large Volva at base. The cap had lost most of its natural colour due to insect damage. The fungi had no real aroma at all which was surprising. The gills were close and only a single specimen was located. Light in the area was very limited with some daylight filtering through occasionally.

This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.


You, as always, are most welcome. Specimen in dryer at the moment. Unfortunately I have dropped behind with micrographs. Have had lectures to do, and now almost full care of my wife, who is over 80. I have been saving a “special Harem” for you! and will try and get some fungi duties attended to in the next few days. Tom May has come on board with assistance in specimens I have loaded. I sent him an email thanking him. (it was a surprise as Fungimap were never interested in my finds before.) I have also joined their membership as a courtesy. I have always supported their book sales. So maybe its all coming to fruition.

Having little nor no odor detectiable by humans (when fresh)…

seems to be fairly typical of the Vaginatae.

This is a lovely specimen, Ian.

I would like to take a look at a part that you are willing to share.

Very best,
