Recognized by sight
Used references: Sources vary regarding the nomenclature for this mushroom, some by pointing to “var. muscaria” as a European subspecies, but nearly all that I consulted (other than this website) label it either var. muscaria or var. flavivolvata. I see now that flavivolvata has been deprecated here in favor of amerimuscaria, which is aces with me.
