Observation 199405: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2015-02-19

Notes: Maybe Amanita ???? Not sure about this specimen. It is different to the Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang (198893), in that the stipe is void of the usual markings..
Cap brown, gills lighter colour and sub-distant. Stipe tapers away from cap and towards (volva?) Some insect damage to cap and possible water damage to gills.
Found as single specimen growing in an open area of the Semi Rainforest in forest soil. Conditions wet at time of find.

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

Another impressive specimen apparently of the Vaginatae.

It looks like it has taken a small beating, however.

Very best,
