Having trouble with a search?
You may be misspelling the name of a taxon. (No kidding. People misspell "Amanita" quite commonly in searches.) The species pages are organized by section of the genus, and the sectional lists present the species in alphabetical order. A schematic definition of the sections can be downloaded as a PDF.
Still having trouble? You may be looking for an old or invalid name, e.g., Agaricus pustulatus or Amanita umbrina. Until we have our nomenclatural history on the web (don't hold your breath), contact us by email. Be sure to put "Amanita name search" in the topic line of your email so that it can be separated quickly from SPAM. We like to hear from users, but please don't over do this! There is one person handling such email, and he has taxonomic jobs to do.
Other search clues:
1. There is no need to type Amanita. Just enter the species epithet you seek.
2. When searching for a geographical name include its adjectival form: E.g., France French, Australia Australian, China Chinese
3. "America" is used as a continent name. For the United States of America use "U.S.A." or "USA" or "US" or "U.S."
4. Do not expect to find information on recreational use of Amanita in these page. We have no interest in helping anyone do damage to themselves or others.
