MO will recognize subsections in Amanita; so you could also say Amanita subsect. Solitariae….because it contains all the possibiities: abrupta, cokeri, subcokeri.

A species list for the subsection is here:


Very best,

So should this just be “Amanita sect. Lepidella” then?

Did you dig up the bulb?

It appears that there were two skirts on the stem (one is in place and the other has fallen down them). The two skirt situation is known from A. cokeri and A. subcokeri, but not from A. abrupta.

The bulb would be important to making a determination without having the ability to measure spores, etc.

Very best,
