Tulloss, R. E., S. H. Iqbal, A. N. Khalid, R. P. Bhatt & V. K. Bhatt. Studies in Amanita (Amanitaceae) from southern Asia. I. Some species of Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Province. Mycotaxon 77: 455-490. 2001.

ABSTRACT: Revision of collections made in the Northwest Frontier Province of Pakistan has resulted in the determination of three previously described taxa - all here reported for the first time from Pakistan: Amanita flavipes, A. orsonii, and A. umbrinolutea. In addition, one taxon of Amanita section Amanita and four taxa of Amanita section Vaginatae have been found that are believed new to science. These are described as fully as possible; but, due to lack of critical data, only one new species is proposed - A. pakistanica. Keys are provided for the known Pakistani taxa of Amanita sections Vaginatae and Validae. The number of Amanita species reported from Pakistan is presently nine.
