I have tried to find on Intenet the difference(s) between the mushrooms Amanita lavendula and A.citrina. Pictures I have found show similar details on both varieties…
Question : what details are specific to each to allow me an identifocation without error ?
looks like there’s quite a bit of confusion in the taxonomy according to https://www.mushroomexpert.com/amanita_citrina.html.
what is your use case? why do you need to be able to identify “without error” as opposed to just identifying close enough?
The two species have different ranges. Amanita citrina is European. A. lavendulae is North/South American. The name A. citrina is quite widely misapplied outside its home range.
Tell me the interest of a wrong identification… My objective is to learn not make errors !
