Saproamanita vittadinii or Amanita vittadinii, commonly known as the Vittadini's lepidella, is a European saprophyte mushroom often classified in the genus Amanita and more recently in the genus Saproamanita.[2] Unlike ordinary Amanitas, this species is known to occur without accompanying woody plant symbionts.[3] It has a general aspect somewhat between Macrolepiota and Armillaria, but it is characterized by a pure white colour overall (whilst those genera are brownish) and by the squamous (scaly) covering of cap and stipe.[4][5]
