The species of this subgenus were formerly included in amanita.
It is true that the amanita has both, but it must be known by other characteristics.
But we may feast our eyes on the amanita, and all other mushrooms, with no fear of consequences.
This species is considered by some only a white variety of amanita phalloides.
amanita Csarea is the only one of the amanitas which has yellow gills.
The amanita, like most falsehoods, is pleasant to the sight.
It is not so warty and the odor is not nearly so strong as the amanita strobiliformis.
But the type of the class may be taken as the amanita muscaria.
Moreover, in autumn it affects the same habitats as the amanita,—which is unfortunate.
One of these, from the amanita muscarius, is reproduced in our illustration.
Amanita Am·a·ni·ta (ām'ə-nī'tə, -nē'-)
