Thank you for your comment. If you do visit Australia in the future, I can show you exactly where these (and other) amanitas might be found. March-April seems the most reliable time for Amanitas in NSW (Blue Mountains region).

your interesting little amanita …

seems to have a rather flocculent UV for section Phalloides. Might just turn out to be a lepidella after all.

We await your further analysis, Rod.

I think probably every year is a great one for interesting amanitas in OZ … just because they are so very strange and different and wonderful.

Can’t wait to collect Down Under myself, someday.

This has been a very interesting year for amanitas in NSW.

Very best,

This is the one I thought was a lepidella! Haha! I’ll blame the pain meds :-)
I’ll send everything over in a couple of weeks when I return to Sydney. The rainy days have stopped now :-(

I think there is a limbate volva on the bulb.

Perhaps this species is related to the non-toxic species that seem closest to the toxic Phalloideae. It will be very interesting to learn more about this one.

Very best,
