Where is Amanita Muscaria var Formosa in Pennsylvania?
    #4529842 - 08/13/05 12:46 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hello,

I am a mushroom explorer living in central PA. I understand that I cannot find Muscaria var Muscaria on the east coast, so I would like to find the Orange-Yellow var formosa. I would appreciate any help in locating this mushroom anywhere in Pennsylvania. How long into the fall does it fruit?

Thank You,

Moonsnail

They'll probably start up pretty soon. When the nights get to be cooler. No, you probably won't find the red muscaria, but there are plenty of others to be found, like yellow patches and var. pantherina. These mushrooms are exciting to find, but are almost impossible to positively id without a microscope.
Look in pine patches.

Look in October near young pine tree forests. Best place to find them.

Thank You,

I appreciate the help and pointers. I anticipate looking here in PA and maybe upstate NY in the fall.
