sounds like a good idea.

There’s a DNA study on Amanita muscaria by Geml, Tulloss et al, where they found 8 different lineages. One large cluster contained species from Eurasia and Alaska, another (very close) from the PNW.
Looks like it’s just a matter of opinion if you choose to call them just muscaria or give them variety names.

Let’s see if this link works:

There is much confusion and history with this complex. It has been discussed at length on this site with Rod Tulloss clarifying the situation somewhat. I would recommend you go to his website as a starter.
Amanita amerimuscaria is a provisional name.

I was told that here in the states this observation would be A. amerimuscaria? Do I have that wrong?

Fantastic Picture!!
