Amanita elata (Massee): False Collybia Amanita
Technical description not yet available.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: (t.b.d.)
All information is taken from Corner and Bas (1962).
The spores from dried material measure 7.0 – 8.5 x (6.0-) 6.8 – 7.7 µm (from fresh material, 7.0 – 9.5 x 6.0 – 8.5 µm) and are globose to subglobose (infrequently broadly ellipsoid) and inamyloid. Clamps were not observed at the bases of basidia.
Amanita elata was described as a Collybia from forest in Singapore where Corner reported it was very common in rainy season.
The partial and universal veils may be easily lost in this species. Corner recorded that the caps were very glutinous; however, this material must be easily lost because Bas reports the exsiccata have only a very thin, colorless, ungelatinized surface layer remaining.
