The genus Amanita has been divided into two monophyletic taxa, Amanita, an ectomycorrhizal genus, and Aspidella, a saprotrophic genus. [...] Key Result Amanita is proposed. Validation of the family name, Amanitaceae E.-J. Gilbert dating from 1940, rather than by Pouzar in 1983 is explained.Expand
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.
The Gondwanan connection - Southern temperate Amanita lineages and the description of the first sequestrate species from the Americas.
TLDR
Amanita nouhrae sp. nov is described, a new hypogeous ('truffle-like') species associated with Nothofagus antarctica in northern Patagonia, which constitutes the first report of a sequestrate Amanita from the Americas.
Molecular phylogenetic analyses show that Amanita ovoidea and Amanita proxima are distinct species and suggest their assignment to Roanokenses section
TLDR
This study supports the development of species-specific markers for diagnosis of the toxic and the edible species here examined by performing nrITS- and RPB2-based analyses of these and other Amanita species.
Defining the phylogenetic position of Amanita species from Andean Colombia
TLDR
This study constructed the first comprehensive phylogeny including ECM species from Colombia collected in native Quercus humboldtii forests and in introduced Pinus patula plantations, allowing the Colombian collections in a coherent infrageneric level and to contribute to the knowledge of local Amanita diversity.
Amanita pseudorufobrunnescens, a new species of Amanita section Amidella from Indian Himalaya
TLDR
Amanita pseudorufobrunnescens is described as a new species in the subgenus Amanitina section Amidella of family Amanitaceae from north-western Himalaya, India that is characterised by its whitish basidiomata that turn brownish orange with age.
Amanitatullossiana, a new species, and two new records of AmanitasectionLepidella from north-western Himalaya, India
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis and morphology both support the association of A.tullossiana with species of Bas’ stirps Cinereoconia – A.griseoverrucosa and A.virgineoides, reported here as new records for India.
A new species and four new records of Amanita (Amanitaceae; Basidiomycota) from Northern Thailand
TLDR
Mushrooms belonging to the genus Amanita were collected during a fungal biodiversity study in northern Thailand in 2012–2014 and described as new to science and compared with phenetically and phylogenetically similar species.
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.
Amanitaahmadii, a new species of Amanita subgenus Amanitina section Validae from Pakistan
TLDR
A new species from coniferous forests in Pakistan, Amanitaahmadii, is described on the basis of morpho-anatomy and molecular data set analyses and phylogenetic analyses confirmed its identity as a new taxon nested within subgen.
Validation of two Amanita species from eastern North America: A.rhacopus sp. nov. and A.variicolor sp. nov.
TLDR
Two new species of Amanitasect.Vaginatae from eastern North America that were recognised under the umbrella European names A.ceciliae by past authors are formally described and validated.

Morphology and subdivision of Amanita and a monograph of its section Lepidella
TLDR
In the taxonomic part synonymy and descriptions are given of the genus Amanita and its subgenus Lepidella, together with a key to the subgenera and the sections, and the term ’pileipellis’ is proposed to replace Fayod’s term ‘cuticula’.
Phylogeny of the Pluteaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycota): taxonomy and character evolution.
TLDR
The phylogeny of the genera traditionally classified in the family Pluteaceae was investigated using molecular data from nuclear ribosomal genes and consequences for taxonomy and character evolution were evaluated.
Molecular phylogeny of eastern Asian species of Amanita (Agaricales, Basidiomycota): taxonomic and biogeographic implications
The phylogenetic relationships, taxonomy and biogeography of the genus Amanita with emphasis on eastern Asian species were estimated using sequence data from both internal transcribed spacer (ITS)
Amanita thiersii is a saprotrophic fungus expanding its range in the United States
TLDR
Stable isotopes of carbon, transcriptomic sequences and patterns of growth on complex carbon sources provide evidence for A. thiersii as a saprotrophic species, and DNA sequences of three nuclear gene regions and banding patterns from four inter-simple sequence repeat markers were identical across 31 populations from throughout the known range of the species, suggesting the genetic diversity of A.Thiersii populations is low.
Tomentella alpina and other tomentelloid taxa fruiting in a glacier valley
TLDR
For the first time, fruiting of eight tomentelloid species in an alpine site is reported, and Tomentella alpina is described as a new species in the rDNA ITS phylogeny, from which it can be clearly separated based on spore size and shape.
Type Studies on Basidiomycetes III
TLDR
The type of this variety is carefully studied as well as the specimens determined as L. torminosa in the Gainesville Herbarium, and the conclusion is that none of them belongs to L.Torminosus.
South African fungi: the genus Amanita
TLDR
Thirteen species of Amanita have been recorded from South Africa, two wrongly, namely A. citrina and A. strobiliformis ( solitaria), as well as two new taxa, A. foetidissima and B. pleropus for which the first comprehensive account is provided.
The genus Amanita in Singapore and Malaya
TLDR
A rather extensive series of collections of the genus Amanita from Malaya and Singapore, provided the basis of 22 species described as new, including Amanita rubrovolvata Imai, which is recorded for the first time from outside Japan.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF AMANITA BASED ON LARGE-SUBUNIT RIBOSOMAL DNA SEQUENCES: IMPLICATIONS FOR TAXONOMY AND CHARACTER EVOLUTION
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the nuc-LSUion supports the taxonomic distinction of subgen- era Amanita and Lepidella, as well as all nine sections previously recognized by Singer, and reveals several higher-level relationships which are also supported by morphological and biochemi- cal characters.
