This text is derived from the original
description of Amanita neocinctipes. The
fruiting bodies of Amanita neocinctipes are
The cap is 40 – 70 mm wide, planar,
and gray-brown to dark gray over the entire
cap, or often dark gray in the center,
gradually changing towards the margin
to brown-gray, gray to grayish. The volva
is present as pyramidal, fluffy to
patchy, dark gray to gray remnants. The
cap’s margin is radially grooved covering
30% - 40% of the cap's radius. There is no material
hanging from the edge and the flesh is white.
The gills are free, crowded, and white.
The short gills are truncate and plentiful.
The stem is 80 – 110 × 3 – 10 mm,
nearly cylindrical and narrowing upwards.
The upper part of stem is dirty white to
grayish and covered with powdery squamules all
of the same color. The lower part of stem is
grayish to gray and decorated with fibrous
squamules. The stem lacks a basal bulb. At
the stem's base, the volva is present in
fluffy to felted, gray to
dark gray remnants, arranged
irregularly or in incomplete belts or rings.
The odor and taste were not recorded for the present
The spores measure 8.0 – 10.5 × 7.0 – 9.0 µm
and are subglobose to broadly ellipsoid
and inamyloid. There are no clamps at the
bases of basidia.
Amanita neocinctipes corresponds to Amanita sp. 10
Amanita neocinctipes is described from
Guangdong Province, China.
It is distributed in a subtropical forests
dominated by Beech (Fagaceae).
To date, four species of A. sect. Vaginatae
with a nonsaccate volva were described from
A. cinctipes Zhu L. Yang et al.,
A. griseofolia Zhu L. Yang,
A. liquii Zhu L. Yang et al.
and A. neocinctipes.
The former three species can be
separated from A. neocinctipes by
molecular phylogenetic, morphological
and ecological evidence. Amanita cinctipes
differs from A. neocinctipes in its
globose to subglobose spores
(Q = 1.0 - 1.15; Q = 1.10).
Amanita griseofolia can be
distinguished from A. neocinctipes
by its globose to subglobose spores
(Q = 1.0 - 1.10 (-1.18)), and its
distribution in mixed forests.
Amanita liquii is different from
A. neocinctipes by its relatively
larger and darker fruiting body,
larger spores (Q = 1.0 - 1.09 (-1.20)
and its subalpine distribution.—Yang-Yang Cui

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 derived directly from the
protolog of the present taxon and associated documen-
tation such as sequences deposited in GenBank.
