You should try google sometime. It's a great search engine.

Merry Christmas.

well I read something a year or so back from a trusted mycologist that theres a strain of amanita muscaria which has a more yellowish tint to the stem other than paper white which we usualy see, and in these yellow stemmed muscarias is some sort of toxin... its not a deadly toxin, but it contains something that irritates your stomach and bowels... you should study up alot of this mushroom, its not only fun but worth your while... go through the files on the main shroomery site, and find some articles on this, read up. this is an amazing mushroom and i think everyone should be well educated on it.

There are mainly two mushrooms that I have seen confused with the red capped varieties of Amanita muscaria. The red capped species of Russula (some people think the red cap is good enough for identification) have showed up here a couple times, and Amanita parcivolvata has also showed up. As far as I know the toxins in A. parcivolvata are still unknown, so it should be avoided. Do *not* use the stem color as your only distinguishing characteristic - mushroom colors are notorious for fading.

As far as the Amanita muscaria experience being pleasant, I have spoken with lots of people over the years who have tried them, and only heard about 2 claim they enjoyed it. The vast majority of people say they'd never do it again. If you're set on eating some, limit your intake the first time. The levels of the toxins are very variable, and the serious poisonings result from large doses. Also, contrary to popular belief, there is not antidote for these toxins, so if you eat too much you're just going to have to ride it out.

Happy mushrooming!
