is an American taxon. All of the potential lectotype material comes from North Carolina. The variety was placed in the wrong species, but there’s nothing we can do about that until the American species is described. So we have another slightly screwy name; however, it is a distinctive name. Moreover, it is in use. I think we should stick to it until we have an established alternative name.

Very best,


This combination will never be made in my opinion.

I do not thin that Amanita rubescens var. alba Coker and A. amerirubescens are the same species, based on existing morphological evidence.
