About this book

Language: English with bilingual summary in English and Spanish

From the abstract:

"We review collections of Amanita of Colombia largely from Quercus humboldtii forests. The number of taxa of Amanita recorded for Colombia is increased from six to thirteen. Amanita advena, A. arocheae, A. aureomonile, A. brunneolocularis, A. colombiana, A. flavoconia var. inquinata, A. flavoconia var. sinapicolor, A. fuligineodisca, A. picea, A. sororcula, and A. xylinivolva are described as new. We believe two of these (A. arocheae and A. aureomonile) are the first species of Amanita reported from a Colombobalanus forest. A type study of A. humboldtii is reported. With the exception of A. flavoconia, A. humboldtii, and A. muscaria var. flavivolvata, the species previously reported from Colombia are cases of misapplication of European names to a member of the preceding list. A key to the species of Amanita known from Colombia is provided."
