Ohio Amanita Muscaria var. formosa?
    #3171552 - 09/23/04 09:03 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Today at work (on a treefarm) I was mowing when I came accross several (15 - 20) large mushrooms. I am pretty damn sure they are Amanita Muscaria var. formosa! The largest one I found was about 6 inches diameter and I found some fully open and some still semi-closed. They werent the bright red that regular muscaria's are and plus I understand they dont grow in my area. So I was wondering if the formosa produce the same effect, assuming that this is what they are... I will try to post some pics of them but I have no camera! These shrooms look IDENTICAL so most pics I've seen so I'm pretty sure it is them. Plus I found them all growing under Blue Spruce tree's, and I read that is where they tend to grow! Any imput is helpful, thanx again!

Yes, supposedly they are a bit stronger though (I heard...)...

From what I've read and heard, variation formosa causes more of the profuse sweating, nausea, and vomiting.

id guess that putting it in a plastic bag really ups the chances of bacteria and harmful molds to start decomposing that thing from the inside out
