A new species, Amanita griseofusca in section Vaginatae is described and illustrated here from Pakistan. Distinguishing
characters of the new species include medium-sized basidiomata, greyish brown pileus surface with white to beige, membranous
volval remnants present as one (large) to a few (small) warts, close lamellae which are cream colored with a pink
tone, striations one third of the total pileus radius, broadly ellipsoidal to ellipsoidal basidiospores and white loose saccate
volva turning beige at maturity. Molecular data inferred from partial nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer region (ITS),
partial nuc rDNA larger subunit region (LSU) and partial translation elongation factor 1-alpha (tef1) confirms the novelty
of the present taxon.
