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

Gills are super white

in the dried specimen so maybe it is the egregia sensu Wood one. I’m back to being excited :-) I’ll send it over later in the week along with the others.

That’s an interesting progess of observations.

With the long marginal striations it is very unlikely to be a species of the Phalloideae (like marmorata). It think you have moved in the right general direction by suggesting a relationship to roseolamellata. I remember that in the past you had some white material from the Caesareae and I thought that it might be A. egregia sensu A. E. Wood. I think that the greatest likelihood from the pictures alone is that this is a species of sect. Caesareae. There are occasional albino specimens in a number of amanita species. So I cannot eliminate the idea that this might be a white roseolamellata; however, I cannot say that this is the most probable determination and prefer to hold off and look at the specimen and the new pictures.

Very best,


Actually, I can’t tell whether or not it had a bulb.

Will upload the pic asap. Maybe it was just a very very pale roseolamellata then. How disappointing!

Yes, it had a bulb I think.

I’ll upload the pic of this one cut in half as soon as I’m back in Sydney. It was found right next to the marmoratas (#196879) so I thought maybe it was a white marmorata, if they exist?!

We had a snow and ice storm, and I never left home. As a consequence I can see the beautiful mushroom. Did you cut the mushroom in half from top to bottom? was there a bulb inside what looks like a membranous volva? Or was the stipe lacking a bulb? What a pretty mushroom.

Very best,
