Thanks for your comments Rod! Honestly these were taken more for beauty’s sake than IDing – I only stumbled across this excellent website this afternoon! There were simply loads of mushrooms in the woods this weekend and hundreds of these Amanitas – such a shame I didn’t take a better shot. Next time I’ll try to do better ;)

Happy hunting,


Blown up to maximum size…

the lower of the two photographs seems to me to show reddish bruising in spots around some warts, on the pileus margin, and on the stem. This suggests to me that the second image is of A. rubescens. The first image does seem a great deal like A. pantherina. Showing the bulbs on the stems in the two cases would help a great deal with IDing from pictures.

Very best,
