Amanita's
    #4469778 - 07/29/05 05:03 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Amanita's -> but which ones are they ?
They were found in Southwestern Vermont, growing under Birch trees. There were some pines, along with other trees, but mostly Birches(in this spot anyway).
I have found all kinds of different Amanita's in this area, but this is the first ones like this that I have found.









Here is a pic of the mycelia that was growing around one of them. This stuff was very thick(meaning it was everywhere)around the area where I found them.


Well ?

:cool: :thumbup:

I wanted to say A. flavoconia, but the staining at the base suggests A. flavorubescens. Edibility is listed as not established.
Nice find and nice pic., but I wouldn't advise eating that  :argh:

Oh, no way eating them. I have never eaten any Amanita and do not plan on it---Yes, I'm Skeered , lol.

Just wondering if they may be active or not--to add to my collection.

while these look to be a candidate for A. muscaria formosa, the volval structure concerns me.

in one pictured specimen there appear to be the concentric rings from the universal viel as would be expected but most of your specimens do not seem to.
without this feature, such an identification con not be concluded.

if you find more, would you photograph them with the bases only gently excavated so we can see them in as undisturbed a condition as may be?

someone will prob ably be allong who has more information, as i have only a partial key to Amanita species occurring in the Pacific Northwest at my disposal at the moment.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I have more pics-some were taken showing them growing from the forest litter. My upload has been used up for the moment.
I will post the rest of them tom.

I was hoping for them to be Amanita Formosa's, but, I will leave the ID'ing up to you pro's,lol.

louisekouise may have something there, as there seems to be vinaceous bruising of the stipe bases, though if it where A. flavorubescens i would expect to see yellow coloration of the volval structure [is this typical for this species?]. if you would, try breaking the stipe in half near the base and check for a bruising reaction.

I would , but , I put them in a paper bag to get a spore print and the bag was placed in a spot( hot & dry) to where they are almost dry now. They were found yesterday morning.

But, I will find more in the morning and I will do as you ask.

Well, I went back this morning and could not find a single specimen.

I guess I will have to wait a few more days before I can see if there is any bruising.

I will post those other pics in a little while when my upload comes back. ( 9 more hours,lol)

Thanks for all the help guys.

I am still searching for an active mushroom in Vermont.
The Shroomery doesn't list any for this state, but, I know they are here somewhere,lol.


Time to go hunting.

Here are the rest of the pics that I promised:
I hope they help a little more, lol.









Are they any better--probably not,but hey, I tried,lol.

There are still 2-3 more pics,but, they are relatively the same views.

Thanks for all of your help anyway.

Hey you've got Amanita Muscaria var. Formosa!

COngradulations!

Now, I've been eating these for a couple of weeks now, here up in Maine. I've been having some wonderful dreams from the teas I've made from my yellow caps. They don't seem to be as potent as the red variety, however.

check this out for tips on hwo to prepare them:

Enjoy you're shrooms!!!

Love
