This text is derived from the original
description of Amanita pallidozonata. The
fruiting bodies of Amanita pallidozonata are
small to medium-sized.
The cap is 35 – 70 mm wide, plano-convex to
planar, gray-brown to brown, forming
a distinctly pale colored ring-like zone
at the proximal end of the marginal grooves. The
cap’s margin has radial grooves covering 30% - 50% of
the cap's radius. There is no material hanging from
the edge. The fresh is white.
The gills are free, crowded, and
white, with white to cream edges. The
short gills are truncate and plentiful.
The stem is 70 – 160 × 6 – 10 mm, nearly cylindrical
or narrowing upwards, white to brownish,
covered with minute, concolorous fibrils. The
stem lacks a basal bulb. At the stem's base,
the volva is saccate, 15 – 30 × 7 – 15 mm,
membranous, the outer surface is white with
brown tinge and the inner surface is white
to dirty white.
The odor and taste were not recorded for the present species.
The spores measure 10.0 – 12.0 × 9.0 – 11.0 µm
and are globose, subglobose to broadly
ellipsoid and inamyloid. There are no clamps
at the bases of basidia.
Amanita pallidozonata is described
from Yunnan Province, China. This species
occurs in pine or mixed forests with
Fagaceae and Pinaceae.
Yang-Yang Cui et al. also has a
ring-like zone at the proximal end of the
marginal striations and could be confused with
A. pallidozonata. However, A. zonata has
relatively smaller spores
(Q = 1.00–1.11 (–1.14)) and is found
in tropical forests with Fagaceae.—Yang-Yang

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.
