Can anyone help me identify this mushroom?
    #3185498 - 09/27/04 09:30 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hi, I found a bunch of these in Western Massachusetts and picked a few because they resembled the Amanita mushroom. After doing a bit of research on the web, it looks to be the Amanita Muscaria Formosa mushroom. Can anyone tell me if this identification is correct? I'm sorry that the pictures are really blurry. This was the best I could get. :frown:

Let me know if you need more info:

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :smile:

sorry, i didn't follow the guidelines correctly. Here's a better description of the mushroom:

- The mushrooms were found under pine trees in Western Massachusetts
- The gills appear to be white, but since these aren't fully opened mushrooms, I can't say for sure if they're consistently white throughout
- The stem is solid with rings
- The cap is yellow with whitish warts

A matured specimen would probibly help to determine an ID.

It looks like an Amanita, although the out of focus photos make that uncertain. I wouldn't even bet on which Subgenus they're in, much less the species. There are too many Amanitas with cap colors like that. At first glance I would doubt that it is Amanita muscaria. The color of the universal veil seems wrong.

Happy mushrooming!
