persicina is a provisional name, not a published name. According to both Mycobank and Index Fungorum, Amanita persicina is not an accepted name.

If and when it gets published, then we can use it.

Thanks for the info Rod, now I know what helps distinguish this variety.
I think collecting and drying specimens may need to become part of my routine.

This is a very nice shot…

It is particularly clear that the yellow volva on the bulb is not arranged in thick, segregated rings, this is a good diagnostic shot (to the degree that I understand this taxon). The observation is marked “no herbarium specimen.” This photo would be a very good one for the Amanita Studies site page on var. persicina if it were backed up by a dried specimen.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
