Known from two specimens from one locality, this genus is represented in New Zealand by a single, rare species. The genus has superficial similarities to Amanita, with copious veil remnants and a bulbous, almost volva-like base. It differs by the inamyloid spores, adnexed rather than free lamallae, and in the anatomy of the gill trama.
