Amanita's do not contain any psilocybin or psilocybe or other mind altertant such as do the normal 'magic mushrooms' you have probably tried or heard about. They contain Muscimol and Ibotenic Acid (the Ibotenic Aid turns somewhat into Musicomol in your system and thus, thou shall trip!) lol, but I have never tried any mushrooms before, so here is a guidline to Amanita Muscaria; http://www.erowid.org/plants/amanitas/amanitas.shtml, thought I warn you, many people put their nose's up to this 'shroom. YOU may enjoy it.

It's very difficult to be sure, and the lookalikes are poisonous. It would be best if you posted a couple of detailed pictures for us to be sure. Muscarias often have deep red caps and are half a foot tall when mature. There should be evidence of a universal veil on the base of the stem, and the cap may have turned orange from rain.

If you learn that it's real, be sure to heat-dry it or else the effects will most definately be unpleasant. Heating it will neutralize the ibotenic acid that gives most people nausea. The best part of the mushroom is the top layer of the cap, so if you have a lot, you can remove the gills and stem for the best result. I'm not sure how many grams are a dose, but start low.

I found a bunch of Amanitas earlier... this is what I have to say. Be vary careful about pests and maggots. They destroy amanitas, making them soggy and very disgusting. It's advised that you dry and heat them before ingestion so that the ibotenic acid converts to muscimol. I personally had every amanita in my batch infected with maggots, including the yellow variety. I tried the open oven dry/heat method. Probably because of the maggots, this tactic made them soggy and disgusting. A fresh dried amanita done properly does not taste too bad, but nasty soggy ones do. Another idea is to dry them out in a sanitary place and then ground them to a fine powder and make tea. The tea is pretty thick but it's not that bad. Expect to salivate and sweat really bad.
