Amanita vittadinii

''Amanita vittadinii'', commonly known as the Vittadini's lepidella, is a European saprophyte mushroom classified in the genus ''Amanita'' Unlike some ''Amanitas'', this species is known to occur without accompanying woody plant symbionts. It has a general aspect somewhat between ''Macrolepiota'' and ''Armillaria'', but it is characterized by a pure white colour overall and by the squamous covering of cap and stipe.
