General Description:

“Ringless Panther” subsection Pantherinae

Diagnostic Description:

Amanita albocreata is not known to have a ring around the stipe…at least in my research. It is known to have a collar at transition between the stipe and bulb.


I have not found any evidence of this species growing in the U.S., but is known to grow in parts of Canada. I have found several mushrooms that I believe are Amanita albocreata in north ga, but have not had a positive id as of yet.

Look Alikes:

Amanita phalloides…have the ring around stipe. I have found these in north ga.
