A definate poisonous look alike IMO, is Amanita Calyptroderma, VS. Amanita Phalloides.

Amanita calyptroderma (also called the coccoli mushroom) is a prized edible by some , and it is common on the west coast. It can be found in mixed hardwood/conifer woods; fruiting from late fall to early winter

Not only does it grow in the same climate and habitat as A. Phalloides, but it also emerges from a sac like cocoon, just like the deadly amanita itself.


AMANITA CALYPTRODERMA (also "A. Lanei" and "A. calyptrada")




AMANITA PHALLOIDES aka "the death cap"



Amanita phalloides is found primarily under oak, but can be found in other hardwoods. It is common from late fall to mid-winter.

you can see that the death cap doesnt have the remnants of the veil on the cap, however i feel the color , size, and shape are enough to merit a warning,

I might mention that there are only about fifteen really posionous mushrooms that one has to worry about. Basically I teach people what not to pick before I teadch them edibles.

You can eliminate the deadlys really easy.

One is that they do not really resemble the psilocybe shrooms if you check the macroscopic details carefully.

The deadly ones which do resemble are three species of Glaerina and one species of Conocybe.

You eliminate the deadly amanitas but hte fact that they have white gills and white sporses and a white sporeprint.

You elimate the deadly bluing Boletes byt he fact that they have pourous sphonghy bottoms and no gills whatsoever.

The false morels do not resemble shrooms.

Eliminte and you save lives.

Yes but you can put a link button on certain words or shrooms that take the reader write to that spot.

Check out the site at the ones that stain blue and notice how they incorporate other sites and infor into their pages. You pages on the toxic and posionus are could follow that html for information.

I need to do a lot of afdding info that I have in my files.

I stll need to put inthe iod's for about 20 species in my field guide. Then I have about three dozen firtst hand mushroom poisoning case studies of psilocybian shrooms accidently consumed as food or on purpose to post.

Many pictures of shrooms yet. and I need to redo the shroom art pages on my site,.

later,

mj

Mr Mushrooms, if you need pd [public domain] pics of deadly amanitas, i know where some phalloides grow. i don't have a camera, but i will before long.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Depends what you mean by edible. It is edible on the level that wood is edible. The mature ones are really leathery and not too tastey.
