Burkina Faso has abundant wild mushrooms, but very few inventories have been carried out to record these species. The shortage of taxonomic studies in Burkina Faso on wild mushroom species limits their knowledge. Three species of the genus Amanita from Burkina Faso are reported and fully described in this paper. They are Amanita pulverulenta Beeli, Amanita citrina (Schaeffer) Persoon and Amanita virido-odorata Beeli. All the three species were collected in the classified forest of Niangoloko, preciously in the mosaic gallery forests dominated by Berlinia grandiflora (Vahl) Hutch. & Dalziel and Isoberlinia doka Craib & Stapf (Caesalpiniaceae) and are assumed to be ectomycorrhizal.
Key words: Fungi, gallery forest, Niangoloko, Burkina Faso.
