Recognized by sight: not sure what you have in S. Africa. Did you dig any up? the volvas (universal veil remnants at the base of the stipe) are very different between the two species: muscaria has concentric rings, pantherina types have a close cup. there is a brown-capped, former variety of muscaria called A. regalis that looks like this, but it would have concentric rings like a muscaria, and is not known to occur in the S. Hemisphere.

well it is night time, so I will go back tomorrow.
In the meantime, I am posting another picture but the base is not too clear.
