Amanita reidiana

Amanita fulva does not have a graying and submembranous volva. A species with this characteristic (which I’ve collected in Scotland) was named Amanita submembranacea var. bispora by Dr. Derek Reid. Ab article is in process of review that will change the name to Amanita reidiana …moving the taxon to species rank.

I have not seen a specimen of reidiana that was this old. Normally, the cap is a darker richer red-brown.

The species is also known from Norway.

Dried material of this species would be very welcome in 2014. :)

Very best,
