Amanita scutum was collected three times on a
single day during Fungal Inventory of the Great Smoky
Mountains National Park.
This is another of the zonate taxa that are placed in
the provisional series Penetratrices because
they share the less common nrLSU 5' motif in section
Vaginatae—TCTGACCTCAAATCA. To be clear,
there are also zonate taxa that have the more common
nrLSU 5' motif—TTTGACCTCAAATCA.
The macroscopically similar species that we know from
Cape May, New Jersey (A.
jakeslandingensis), does not have the series
Penetratrices type of nrLSU 5' motif.
