yellow stainers

My friend in Mexico has eaten phenolic smelling yellow stainers and never had a problem. Some people aren’t sensitive to the toxin, I have no idea what percentage of people that is. Other people have told me that eating a small bit of A. xanthodermus raw (the size of a dime) gives them stomach issues.

Oh, I have eaten a good amount of yellow stainers till I learned them better and I know that metallic taste. Never had a gastrointestinal problem and I believe most do not have one either, as I am pretty sure the yellow strainers are eaten a lot more often than we realize…

I wondered about that myself

So far, I’ve not purged myself. I will say though that one I ate had a tapered stipe base and when I cut one open from the same patch previously, the gills had pinkish hue. I’ve got a photo of that around here somewhere.

I think you have a mixed collection of yellow stainers (A. xanthodermus gr.) and something close to A. bitorquis (the squat one with the peronate annulus). The metallic taste is very typical for the yellow stainer, which i think the upper photo is.

Taste at first metallic
