line
The universal veil, which is little more than a powder, can, under wet conditions, be washed off, and odd for an Amanita, it has no ring on the stipe. It's also one of the few native species that has been known to jump over to introduced trees, particularly eucalyptus.

Gills: crowded, free, white to pale buff Stipe 20-75 mm high, 4-11 mm diameter, hollow, from clavate or bulbous base, 10-16 mm diameter, surface white, very pale buff or very pale greyish sepia.
Stipe: Upper stipe smooth to subfloccose, lower stipe smooth, base with rim or band of pulverulent, greyish sepia to fuscous volva remnants.
