DescriptionIn biological naming conventions, the abbreviation aff. (which in Latin means “closely related to”) is used to indicate that the specimen is related to but is not identical to the species name used in the identification. For example, Amanita aff. vaginata suggests that this specimen closely resembles Amanita vaginata but does not belong exactly to that species.

Amanita vaginata, commonly named “grisette” due to its grey brownish colour, grows often in public parks or grassy area where the earth has been recently disturbed. The species is widely distributed in North America.
