Observation 165398: Amanita Pers.

I have recorded similar finds from this same spot before. Usually two specimens are found together. The other fungi this time was too mature to keep, but the other was a good fresh and firm specimen. They were found growing in soil covered with grass that may have been planted in the area by Forestry staff. Pines and Flooded gums surround the area.

yet another odd amanita from OZ!

Throw a gill under your scope, Ian, and check those spores for amyloidity. That might help you to get this to a section.

Good illustration of an appendiculate margin as well as an amanita w/out free gills.

Very interesting, Ian.

I would say “Amanita” also, David. EDITED

Notice the lamella edge cells that are left in lines on the partial veil as well as on the edges of the gills. In particular, see the third image from the top.

Very best,


Nice photo of the gill attachment, Ian.

Reminds me a bit of the NA species A. crenulata, which is in section Amanita. But for some reason I can’t quite pinpoint, this also brings section Validae to my mind… assuming this actually is an Amanita.
