What I’d call it

depends upon whom I was talking to.

When discussing with someone who’se actively engaged in researching the genus Amanita, or who’se merely research oriented, I’d go with the cutting edge name, which to my knowledge is “borealisorora.” When discussing with a mushroom enthusiast who hopes to locate a description in a manual, I’d call it “ceciliae”, or even “inaurata.” I often find myself in this predicament… Depending upon the willingness of the listener to listen, I may explain about the Euro/Amer/DNA name game.
