Amanita pseudovaginata from Pakistan.

Amanita pseudovaginata was found associated with Quercus spp. forests during a survey of macrofungi from oaks forests of Pakistan. The fruiting body was characterized morphoanatomically as well as by molecular analysis. The identification of the fungal symbiont as Amanita pseudovaginata was confirmed by Internal Transcribed Spacer of ribosomal DNA (ITS rDNA) sequence. Sporocarps were matched with published data available from Russia and China. Phylogenetic analyses and morphological descriptions are provided. This represents the first report of this species in Pakistan.
