Amanita chepangiana, commonly known as the Chepang slender Caesar, is a species of agaric fungus in the family Amanitaceae native to China and southern Asia.

In part of Yunnan, China, the species is traditionally consumed, however toxicity analysis found out at least 1 type of amatoxin and phallotoxin each within the species. Together with the difficulty to distinguish against other lethal species, consumption is advised against.[1]
