Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Amanita malayensis is molecularly well-defined
without close phylogenetic relatives in the Asian
mycota. Based on the data presented in this study, its
closest phylogenetic relatives are A. javanica, A. rubromarginata,
and Amanita sp. 1


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

This fungus has only been recorded growing in association with Hopea odorata (Dipterocarpaceae) from one location in a popular public park.


Geographic range

In Malaysia, it has only been found growing in small groups among planted Hopea odorata (Dipterocarpaceae) in a public park in the state of Perak. According to GenBank data (ITS: AB451969, AB458887), this taxon occurs in Thailand and is misidentified as A. hemibapha subsp. javanica. In Thailand, it is reported as an ectomycorrhizal fungus in dipterocarp forest.


Population and Trends

Unknown.

Population Trend: Uncertain


Habitat and Ecology

The fungus grows in small groups on soil under dipterocarps. In Malaysia, it was collected from the same location in the public park during the months of July and March, in 2007 and 2008, respectively.
