Hi, all... these were spotted near Lake Ontario, generally. I believe that they are Amanita Muscaria, var. formosa. They fruited when the rains (3") from Katrina passed through the area. They have been drying on the stalk for five days in 70 to 80 degree temps.
I'm pretty sure they're formosa, but they're a bit different in appearance from what I fondly recall in the Northwest US. I believe the original color was definately a yellow-orange. Any comments or insights are welcome. Also, I doubt if they're panthers, which are extremely rare in the east.
Anyone know of any poision look-a-likes for these?
