i do not know the logistics at all…
however, if they are indeed different in morphology and micro characteristics…
they should be treated as such, imo.

the concept ameri-(insert amanita name here) …

has not yet been formally described or published. Has it?

no good name currently exists for these not European forms. it is certainly within the pantherina group, broadly speaking.

there may well be differences between the eastern and western NA populations of these brown capped,
rolled-sock-volva toxic amanitas, so don’t assume that they are all the same, from east to west, either.

panthers are what we call em, for now. It’s a start.

Well that wasn’t the whole question…

Not quite sure how it got published like that, guess I jumped the gun. Thanks for answering anyway.
