Since there is little about it in the literature, I would guess that it is not very common.

Very best,


Looking at the photographs again (close up) and

looking at the available data on subvaginata, I’m very inclined to think that that is what Ian has found.

Very best,

The proposed name is a provisional recombination.


Perhaps, this material will allow us to see subvaginata should be grouped…

with A. farinosa and other taxa in the provisional subsect. Amanitella of section Amanita.

I’d like to see part or all of this material, Ian.

…has not been associated with an observation on MO in the past.

I thought that I had seen it here. I remember a discussion of the species with someone on the web.

This is much closer to the original description and illustration of subvaginata than to Wood’s interpretation of the species. Amanita subvaginata sensu A. E. Wood is not a taxon of sect. Amanta. Wood’s entity belongs in section Vaginatae.


I agree with the direction given by Igor’s suggestion.

Could this species be Amanita subvaginata?

This is a powdery capped species from eastern Australia with very similar coloration.

Very best,
