DescriptionIn biological naming conventions, the abbreviation cf. (which in Latin means compare) placed between the genus name and the species name indicates that the specimen is confidently identified at the genus level, but the actual species level identification cannot be certain. In this case, “Amanita cf. ravenelii” indicates that the specimen is in the genus Amanita and believed to be Amanita ravenelii but not with 100 % certainty.
