It’s the bottom the bulb that may be rounded, which I now understand. Proposal “abrupta” has been appropriately destroyed.
I have rewritten the very cumbersome sentence for the new Amanitaceae site as soon as I saw your citation. That comma after “abrupt” should be read as a distinct pause. The group of words and phrases separated by “or” are descriptions of what the bottom of the bulb can be like.
I’ll send you a separate email.
not abrupt, as one would ordinarily expect. From the Amanita Website the description is “… abrupt, subnapiform or rounded.” So I figured that these were perhaps examples of the “rounded” version.
I’ll allow the “abrupta” proposal to remain (along with the low level of confidence), although putting this species name onto this obs does seem like a stretch.
