The Cap of Amanita farinacea is up to 60 mm in diameter, broadly convex and white. It is and initially covered with mealy white veil fragments that remain in ragged fringes hanging from the margins.
These gradually fall off in the form of flour-like granules that litter the ground below leaving the cap smooth and silky.
The Gills are closely spaced and are also white but become pale yellow as can just be seen in the first photo.
The white stem of Amanita farinacea is shortish, equal, covered with floury veil fragments and has a rather thick, volval rim at the top of a rounded bulb.
Found: ln tea-tree woodland.
Forrest, northern Otway ranges.
