It is a species of section Amanita, but not one that has its sequence data deposited in GenBank. I think it is reasonable a sp-Tnn temporary code. We have obtained good sequences for the nrITS and nrLSU sequences. Amanita crenulata was discussed for this species in the past; however, the sequences are distinct from those that we know for A. crenulata.

Thanks for sending this material.

The effort was appreciated.

Very best,

The striate cap margin and limbate volva on the bulbous base suggest a species of section Amanita.

Thanks for the material.

Very best,
