Something about the cap color on this species seems a little off …

for “sp-36.”

You might look for some other alternatives on the WAO (www.amanitaceae.org) website.

You could try these two regional checklists



Very best,


Yes, “sp-36” is a possibility.

The species is probably in Amanita sect. Validae.

Our early days of looking at a few genes of species in this section suggest that there are a goodly number of undescribed species in North America, perhaps more than I thought.

We try to keep the Amanitaceae Studies web site up to date. You can see what we have learned about a number of species that are not formally named there:


Section Validae has an index page here:


Amanitasp-36” has a species page here:


Thanks for posting these images and the possible ID.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
