Britney, we are all learning. I’m sure there are many western mushrooms I would mis-identify or not identify simpley because I am an the east

sorry about that, Leighton

Nice find. I guess the color confused me. Glad you got some confirmation.

confuse me, don’t even know which names are valid, but I thought it looked like the A. uscaria I aught to find in Ohio, Where I am :)

these have a yellow cap and white warts and 4 concentric rings at the base of the stipe. Maybe the pictures are too washed out?

There are ways-

for preparing A.muscaria by parboiling it in lots of water and salt- but I’d steer clear of any white Amanita that doesn’t have the ubiquitous deep red cap, universal veil, etc. True, there is a white capped variety of A.muscraria-but a risky practice when it could cost you your liver… Be positive of ID with any Amanita species!

That’s odd

These don’t look anything like Amanita amerimuscaria / muscaria sensu auct / whatever you call it….lol. Not in any of it’s sub-species either. :shrug:

Seriously though, they don’t resemble your suggestion at all.
