Main Article Content
Two new records of Amanita constricta and Amanita velosa from India are reported for the first time from sal Shorea robusta forest of central India. Earlier Amanita constricta was reported from USA and Canada, while A. velosa was reported from USA and Mexico. The reported species are edible but they should be taken with caution as at least two deadly Amanitas with saccate type volvas are known. A. velosa grows in open areas.
