The following text may make multiple use of each
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
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
based on notes and photographs of the collector,
molecular studies by Dr. L. V. Kudzma
and other original research of R. E. Tulloss.
107 - 125 mm wide, brownish gray or olive gray over marginal
striations, light to moderate gray and slightly
virgate elsewhere; context white, ?? mm thick over stipe;
margin nonappendiculate, distinctly
tuberculate striate (0.3R), decurved; universal
veil as white membranous patch in material
examined, not discoloring.
free, close, pale orangish cream in side view,
marginate with distinct orangish gray material on
truncate, to rounded truncate, to subtruncate,
common, of diverse lengths, unevenly distributed.
179 - 207 × 15 - 17 mm, at first gray, with expansion
becoming gray punctate on upper stipe surface and
having orangish gray to dark gray
pattern below (becoming darker toward stipe base),
with white ground color, narrowing upward, flaring at
apex; context white, ??; exannulate;
universal veil as saccate volva, white,
membranous, not discoloring, persistent, 41 - 69 × 31
mm, flaring upward rather evenly.

s.n. [mushroomobserver #202936]
(RET 688-2; nrITS & nrLSU seq'd.).
This is another Australian species of section
Vaginatae with the unusual 5' motif
(5'-TCTGACCTCAAATCA) for the nrLSU sequence. For

Spore data for collections provisionally identified as: Amanita sp-AUS11 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.
