AbstractThis study investigated the morphological characteristics and molecular phylogenetic relationships among lethal Amanita species occurring in East Asia. The results revealed that at least nine phylogenetic taxa exist in the region. Among them, five were identical to previously known morphological taxa including A. exitialis, A. fuliginea, A. subjunquillea, A. subjunquillea var. alba and A. virosa; three new taxa, A. fuligineoides, A. rimosa and A. pallidorosea were described and illustrated here. The remaining one was labeled "A. sp. 1" because no robust morphological evidence was found to distinguish it from A. subjunquillea var. alba. The occurrence of A. virosa in East Asia, a well-known lethally poisonous mushroom originally described from Europe, was confirmed by both ITS sequences and morphology. Another lethal species native to Europe, A. phalloides, was determined as closely related to A. subjunquillea from East Asia. Amanita oberwinklerana was treated in section Phalloideae from a morphological point of view, but appeared to be a member of section Lepidella by the analyses of sequences from both the ITS regions and the large subunit of nuclear ribosomal RNA gene. Distribution features of East Asian Phalloideae and the phylogenetic relationships of these species with their counterparts from Europe and North America were also discussed. A key to species of section Phalloideae in East Asia is furnished.
