The Thiers' lepidella (Saproamanita thiersii) belongs to Amanitaceae (the Amanita family). It is a white mushroom originally described from Texas but today found in nine states of North America. The species is named after Harry Delbert Thiers. This mushroom grows in lawns, pastures and prairies, and it is a saprotroph, living on decaying plant material. The cap of this small mushroom is white and convex, measuring 35-100 mm across and covered by volval remnants, and it is sticky to the touch when wet. The toxicity of Saproamanita thiersii has been suspect.
