This family is very challenging, especially when concerning the possibly DEADLY panther amanita and the blusher. To quote a manual: "The actual differences between this and its poisonous counterparts are only possible to detect when the mushrooms are more open and more mature or when you cut them in half".

You need better photos in macro mode that aren't over-exposed. please try taking a spore print (any more mature specimen found back at the same spot will do) if possible and fill out this information:


Gills: (attached? spacing? regular?)

Stem: thick, thin, hollow tapered?

Cap:  how big, convex/concave, etc

Spore print color:


Location: where on earth are you? which country/state/province?

I advise any noob looking to identify mushrooms to fill out the ID form and provide clear photographs. Knowledge is a privilege and deserves respect. Let's give due props to the experts!
