Amanita nauseosa is a species of agaric fungus in the family Amanitaceae. First described by English mycologist Elsie Maud Wakefield in 1918 as a species of Lepiota, it was named for its nauseating odor. The type specimen was found growing on soil in the Nepenthes greenhouse at Kew Gardens.[3] Derek Reid transferred the species to Amanita in 1966.[4] The fungus is found in Australia, and the Caribbean region of North America.[5]
