I also heard that it was edible and sold in markets. We didn’t find the courage to try it this time, maybe next year.

not just beautiful, but a popular market species, too.

I recently put together a talk on edible and deadly amanitas from around the world, that I presented to the Colorado Mycological Society. Needless to say, I did a good bit of fact-checking first, through both Dr. Tulloss’ fine website and directly through Rod himself. Here is what he had to say about your South of the Border “flavoconia”:

“In Mexico, like the rubescens-like taxa, one sees them in the market frequently (in season). Amanita flavoconia is called “mosquito” (little fly) because of its warts (called “flies” in Mexico)." RET
