I think you might mean Amanita muscaria var. formosa?

Keep in mind that many amanitas can look alike and can share a common habitat, some species in the genus are even deadly poisonous. I have done some hiking and mushroom hunting up in the mountains of PA. It is really a beautiful and fun place to spend time. Good luck and looking forward to your pics. The fruitings usually start in the early fall, here in the northeast.

Yeah, I've found such a wide variety of fly agarics in my area, I just admire them. They are beautiful, and fun to find :smile:
But it's not worth the risk for me to mess with them at all.

yea its usually teh fall they fruit.or at least in a the mid summer. make sure to get a positive ID before you consume. and even handling them can get you a bit sick.

Make sure you dig up the entire base of the mushroom and get a photo that shows the base of the stem including the volva. Those are very important for accurate identification of these Amanitas.

Happy mushrooming!
