The following text may make multiple use of each data field.
The field may contain magenta text presenting data from a type study
and/or revision of other original material cited in the protolog of the present taxon.
Macroscopic descriptions in magenta are a combination of data from the protolog and
additional observations made on the exiccata during revision of the cited original
The same field may also contain black text, which is data from a revision of the present
taxon (including non-type material and/or material not cited in the protolog).
Paragraphs of black text will be labeled if further subdivision of
this text is appropriate.
Olive text indicates a specimen that has not been
thoroughly examined (for example, for microscopic details) and marks other places in the text
where data is missing or uncertain.
The following material is based on original
research of R. E. Tulloss.
Basidiome of medium size.
margin striate (ca. 0.3R);
universal veil as small, white,
verrucose, patches or warts.
free, close, ??;
truncate, of diverse lengths, unevenly distributed.
universal veil as saccate volva, white
on exterior, at least sometimes opening unevenly
(e.g., with limb on one side extending to
about one-third of stipe length and of minimal
length on opposite side of
Solitary. In semi-rainforest.
AUSTRALIA: NEW SOUTH
WALES—Yarrahapinni St. For., N. of Grassy Head
[30.78165° S/ 152.982° E], 9.iv.2015 Ian Dodd
7642/431 (RET 692-2; nrITS & nrLSU seq'd.).
The macroscopic description is based entirely on what
could be gleaned from a dried specimen.
This is another Australian species of section
Vaginatae with the unusual 5' motif
(5'-TCTGACCTCAAATCA) in the nrLSU sequence. For
a list of other taxa of the world with this motif, see
the discussion data field for A. penetratrix.
There are no illustrations available for this taxon.

Spore data for collections provisionally identified as: Amanita sp-AUS09 Tulloss & Kudzma
Each spore data set is intended to comprise a set of measurements from a single specimen made by a single observer;
and explanations prepared for this site talk about specimen-observer pairs associated with each data set.
Combining more data into a single data set is non-optimal because it obscures observer differences
(which may be valuable for instructional purposes, for example) and may obscure instances in which
a single collection inadvertently contains a mixture of taxa.
