AUSTRALIA: NEW SOUTH
WALES—Yarrahapinni St. For., N. of Grassy
Head [30.78165° S/ 152.982° E], 15.i.2015 Ian Dodd
75621/628 [mushroomobserver #196610]
(RET 679-8, nrITS seq'd.).
In New South Wales, this species is unique (to date)
combination of a three-zone pileus, light gray
zebroid stipe decoration, an obconic volval sac, and
the 5'-TCTGGCC... 5' motif for its nrLSU
For more examples of members of the Vaginatae
with the curious 5' motif of nrLSU, see the end of
the techtab on this
Although, this probably likely to change with time,
it is presently the case (16 April 2017) that the
the nrITS sequence derived from A. kundabungii
has as its closest matches in GenBank clones of a
sequestrate Amanita from Australia (see,
GenBank sequences GQ925401-GQ925403).
Amanita kundabungii was previously called
"Amanita sp-AUS07" in these pages.

Spore data for collections provisionally identified as: Amanita kundabungii 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.
