The editors of this site owe a great debt to Dr. Cornelis Bas
whose famous cigar box files of Amanita nomenclatural information
gathered over three or more decades were made available to RET for computerization
and make up the lion's share of the nomenclatural information presented on this site.
genitive of Latinized name, "of Inzenga" or "Inzenga's"

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.
This following is largely derived from the protolog of the present taxon.
from protolog: [-/-/-] (8-) 9 - 12 × 6 - 8 (-8.5)μm, (Q = (1.23-) 1.36 - 1.70 (-1.80); Q = 1.49 - 1.50), hyaline, smooth, inamyloid, ellipsoid to elongate, infrequently broadly ellipsoid; apiculus present; contents not described; color in deposit not recorded.
from protolog: Corsica: In sandy terrain, at sea's edge. At sea level. Under Cistus salviifolius and Alyssum ligusticum (=A. halimifolium). Dép. Var, France: On schist, with Pinus pinaster, Quercus ilex, and Cistus spp.
Neville and Poumarat (2004): In addition in Var, with Cistus sp., Erica arborea, and Ilex aquifolium.

It is questionable as to whether the plate of Inzenga depicts the present fungus. The coloring of shading on the stipe, the pileus, the universal veil warts on the pileus, and in the central cylinder of the stipe (in cross-section) is the same umbrinous shade (without any obvious tint of gray). It could be argued reasonably that the use of this pigment is an artist's and/or printer's choice for shading of the basidiomes illustrated. Because the image is the sole evidence used to argue that Inzenga knew the taxon named for him, the conclusion that he did and that (therefore) the taxon is present in Sardinia does not seem justified by the available evidence.
The original material was collected in sand with considerable organic matter. No discussion is given with regard to the possibility that the gray material on the stipe and universal veil is carbon from the environment.

Information to support the viewer in reading the content of "technical" tabs
can be found here.
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.
