I fried a very small amount of this cap in a pan with butter and ate it on the advice of Amanita rita. She was right, it tasted very good, no symptoms. My friend who ate the same amount was not so lucky; she didn’t get high or anything but she threw up.

Just a reminder that the widespread red “muscaria” south of Alaska is Amanita muscaria subsp. flavivolvata. It will get a species rank name shortly. Because of potential confusions, the name will NOT be the same as the current subspecies rank name.
