Usually, I found last year in Jun too, I think should be again in June this year. Foreigners come here quite a bit difficult but if come to close the city is OK


There is flocculence on the young cap, which makes me think of section Amidella.

EDITED – 29.v.2017

There are several possibilities for a name for this mushroom in SE Asia. Two have am inner layer of volval material on the cap that turn tan or brown with age: Amanita clarosquamosa and A. avellaneosquamosa. A relatively common species of with the membranous outer layer turns yellowish (as in the European A. proxima) is A. neoovoidea. Finally, there is a species that could either be an Amidella with inamyloid spores or an unusual species of section Vaginatae: A. pudibunda. That latter was described from a market in Thailand many years ago. There is a drawing in Paris and a specimen that is well-preserved in liquid.

I have written a type description of pudibunda and a review of original and other material of neoovoidea. Yang has published on Chinese material of all the taxa except pudibunda.

There are links to descriptions of the first three here:


The oddball is (at the moment) listed under section Vaginatae by Tulloss and Yang:


Very best,

Judging from other obsies posted by Vihane, this was collected in Laos.

The long volval sac is not consistent with virosa.

Can we get a hint as to the locality where this was collected? :)

Very best,
