Abstract. The following three similar Amanita spp. are described: Amanita djarilmari E.M.Davison, A. gardneri E.M.Davison from the south-west of Western Australia and A. millsii E.M.Davison & G.M.Gates (=A. sp. 10 ZLY-2014 HKAS 77322 in KUN) from Tasmania. All have a white- or pale-coloured pileus and white universal veil, but differ in the shape of the bulb, spore shape, and structure of the universal veil. All are from subgenus Lepidella section Phalloideae. Phylogenetic analysis showed that… Expand
Two new species of Amanitasect.Phalloideae from Africa, one of which is devoid of amatoxins and phallotoxins
TLDR
Two new species of Amanitasect.phalloideae are described from tropical Africa based on both morphological and molecular data and the presence of the gene sequence encoding for the phallotoxin phallacidin (PHA gene, member of the MSDIN family) is demonstrated. Expand
The family Amanitaceae: molecular phylogeny, higher-rank taxonomy and the species in China
TLDR
One-hundred and sixty-two species of Amanitaceae known from China are treated in this study, including 50 novel species and 112 known taxa, and it is clear that Catatrama is closely related to Limacella, however, the phylogenetic relationships among these genera remain largely unresolved. Expand
Additions to Amanita (Amanitaceae, Agaricales) section Arenariae from south-western Australia
A recent molecular phylogeny of Amanita recognises three subgenera and 11 sections. Members of subgenus Amanitina are characterised by amyloid spores and a mycorrhizal habit. Section Arenariae fallsExpand

Amanita lesueurii and A. wadjukiorum (Basidiomycota), two new species from Western Australia, and an expanded description of A. fibrillopes

Neotypification and redescription of Amanita preissii (Basidiomycota), and reconsideration of the status of A. griseibrunnea
TLDR
Re-examination of collections of A. griseibrunnea O.K.Mill show that they do not differ significantly from A. preissii and the two species are combined. Expand
Lethal Amanita species in China
TLDR
A 5-gene phylogeny (nuc rDNA region encompassing the internal transcribed spacers 1 and 2 with the 5.8S r DNA, the D1–D3 domains of nuc 28S rDNA, and partial RNA polymerase II second largest subunit) is used to investigate the phylogenetic lineages and species delimitation in this section. Expand
Multi-locus phylogeny of lethal amanitas: Implications for species diversity and historical biogeography
TLDR
The cryptic diversity found in this study indicates that the species diversity of lethal amanitas is strongly underestimated under the current taxonomy, and the importance of both dispersal and vicariance in shaping the intercontinental distributions of these ectomycorrhizal fungi is indicated.

Amanita marmorata subsp. myrtacearum—a new subspecies in Amanita section Phalloideae from Hawaii
A widely distributed Amanita was observed on six of the Hawaiian Islands fruiting in association with Eucalyptus and Casuarina species. Subsequent in? vestigation revealed it to be closely related toExpand
The genus Amanita should not be split
TLDR
It is argued that the current use of next-generation sequencing in studies of fungal ecology does not necessitate the splitting of Amanita, and a minimal reorganization of the genus is proposed—removal of stirps Hesleri from subsection Vittadiniae. Expand
Lethal amanitas of East Asia characterized by morphological and molecular data
TLDR
The morphological characteristics and molecular phylogenetic relationships among lethal Amanita species occurring in East Asia revealed that at least nine phylogenetic taxa exist in the region, and Amanita oberwinklerana appeared to be a member of section Lepidella by the analyses of sequences from both the ITS regions and the large subunit of nuclear ribosomal RNA gene.

Amanita ibotengutake sp. nov., a poisonous fungus from Japan
TLDR
It is concluded that the misidentified species is the unexplored Amanita species treated under the Japanese name ‘ibotengutake’ after which ibotenic acid was named and described it as a new species Amanita ibotENGutake. Expand
