I did look up the morphology on Rod’s site

like for persicina, there are no typical muscaria rings.

I suspect that both the type still resides in Europe and it was too soon for DNA when it was described. Maybe Rod will comment here.

That he worked with Salvatore Curreli in first describing Amanita gioiosa. If DNA work was underway at that time, I would guess that he did the DNA or at least could answer other questions about A gioiosa morphology.

did some of these examples have the typical ringed basal volva of muscaroids?
has the DNA been done?
