About this book

Species of the genus Amanita include some of the most striking and beautiful members of our forest and downland mycota. Often large in size and with bright colours they have long fascinated mycologists and non-mycologists alike. That some species are delicious edibles while others produce deadly toxins only adds to their glamour.

The Genus Amanita in Great Britain contains photographs of many of the commoner species and some of the rarer and more obscure species that are normally rarely shown. Other, more recently described species are scarcely known outside of the often obscure and difficult to obtain specialist literature. The Genus Amanita in Great Britain presents a broad view of the British species plus some extra-limital species that might be found here. Keys to all of these are provided in the hope that some of these not yet recorded species will be recognised and recorded from our shores.
