Amanita Pers., Tent. disp. meth. fung. (Lipsiae): 65 (1797) The genus Amanita (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) is a cosmopolitan genus, comprising about 500 described and accepted species worldwide (Bas 2000; Tulloss 2005; Yang 2005). This group of fungi can form ectomycorrhizal symbiosis with plants of more than ten families, such as Fagaceae, Myrtaceae and Pinaceae (Yang et al. 1999). Based on morphological and anatomical characters, Amanita could be divided into two subgenera, Amanita and Lepidella (E.J. Gilbert) Veselý (Corner and Bas 1962; Bas 1969), consisting of seven sections, Amanita, Caesareae Singer, Vaginatae (Fr.) Quél., Amidella (J.-E. Gilbert) Konrad & Maubl., Lepidella, Phalloideae (Fr.) Quél. and Validae (Fr.) Quél. (Yang 1997). Herein we described three new species of A. sect. Amanita supported by both morphological and molecular phylogenetic evidences. Sequence data used in this study are from previous studies (Weiβ et al. 1998; Zhang et al. 2004; Vargas et al. 2011; Wolfe et al. 2012; Sánchez-Ramírez et al. 2015) or are newly generated.
