I was looking for a single page that described the different sections.

Amanita arkansana has a robust saccate volva.

It is also a rather large mushroom with striate cap margin and is very fragile.

I think what you have here is probably A. flavoconia.

I see that you reference www.amanitaceae.org on many of your observations. Thanks for using the site and referencing it.

If you haven’t already come across the following page on the site, you might find it useful:

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Sections+of+Amanita

Learning the section definitions can give you a leg up with Amanita. Also, the site is organized so that each section has a directory page (which you probably already know).

Amanita arkansana falls in Amanita sect. Caesareae.

Amanita flavoconia falls in sect. Validae.

It’s interesting to see the early June amanitas from the SE states that are being posted on MO in the last month or so.
