I am talking about biodiversity, not teaming humanity and their very own many peculiarities.

The island biogeography of OZ and NZ is astounding, and very very different from the US or Europe, which is the main focus of our NA myco-knowlege!

Just got back from five weeks in OZ; can’t wait to go back, and will definitely include NZ next time.

BTW, strange is not bad, it’s fascinating!

That’s what I thought, too, when I saw this obs. Not surprisingly, A. nehuta was placed into subsection Amanitella, series Farinosae. :~)

Reminds me of…

the North American Amanita farinosa species (of which there appear to be two).

What a strange basal bulb on this one!
