would you ever eat it? the thought of it being white just scares me but if i was 100% certain because of DNA tests i would
as it would so happen…I grew up that little button and it turned out rather curious…obviously some sort of Section Amanita, certainly close to muscaria with that fractured-top bulb, BUT…absolutely no sign of an annulus. The annuli were so reduced in the mature specimens that I determined to see what it looked like from inception. Quite powdery on the stipe surface, but no ring or annular material was seen.
I cut that newly grown-up one in half while still fresh, and would be glad to send it to you, Rod. In fact, I’ll bring it with me to NEMF and save the postage! Perhaps we could have time to look at it together there…can you get the DNA done out East? It might be a while out here…
I’d like to borrow part of a mature cap or more material if it can be spared.
