OH man, Amanita Muscaria PNW ID!
    #7514362 - 10/14/07 01:50 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Got a book on N American Mushrooms, and this thing fits the description pretty well.

I was on my way home and realized I live near a horse ranch. I parked my car across the ranch on another road leading away from it, whipped my flashlight out and said, "Meh, why not search the side of the road on the way." I found some Boletes of some kind, but I'll get to that in another thread. So I'm about to cross the street to scan around the fence of the ranch. "Hmm, let's look a little more." I turn the corner, and BAM!" I see like 20-30 of these guys, some babies, some flat capped adults ranging to about 4 inches wide. Needless to say I'm freaking out, I get in my car with one sample and head home.





Habitat was slightly mossy grass under and not under a low hanging tree.

Yeah, I'd like to see how those veil bits spread out or not. Gemmata is very similar, right? A. Muscaria is the only mushroom I hunt for, and I never find it.

I knew I should've gotten a bigger one. I wanna say they spread out, but can't remember exactly. I do know that from the pictures I'm looking at of Gemmata, the ones I have looking nothing alike. I'll bring the camera along tomorrow morning and snap the whole batch.

Man, I'm really hoping I found the real deal this early, it's only the 3rd day of my first hunting season. It's so fascinating, I'm seriously thinking about minoring in mycology.

Yes you are superior in every way.  :rolleyes:  Did you even look at my username?  It's not like I've been at this for any amount of time.  Did you pick on kids who were smaller than you in the playground?  'Cause that's what you're doing now.

Well its just hard to go near trees and not start finding amanitas if you live were they grow.

And there all that you hunt, and they are bright red.

I mean, its just about the most visible shroom there is and they get huge.

Read your field guide carefully. Google amanita and read, here and across the web.
One of the most important characteristic for A. muscaria is at the base of the stipe. Amanita is not a family you want to be gambling with.

They're extremely photogenic tho, get some habitat shotz  :derfase:

That's why I'm looking for them. They're a good one to start with (hunting, not consuming). I've also become pretty good at identifying galerinas. Which is good, because I don't want to eat them ever.

Edit: Just wanted to add this -

Those the ones that all look the same, but all with slight differences? Every time I see one, I'm like, "LIBERTY!?"

But I am serious, you only have to walk were medium sized trees are to start finding the amanitas. I have found so many muscara, one time I started drying a haul in my oven then paniced cause no on could tell if my stem had the spikes or not on here so I threw them into the furnace.

The spikes on the base of the stem, they said they were to damaged and worn to tell.

Update: NEW PICS

Upon picking up one of the big ones, a white sticky residue(spores?) was left on my fingers.

they look right to me, but u need to give a nice close up shot of the base of the stem for anyone to be 100% sure... concentric rings of scales at the base of the stem are the defining characteristic with a. muscaria. <see the pic i posted above>

undoubtedly those mushrooms will give a white spore print but that doesnt differentiate them from other amanitas at all...

there are about a million of these things around Seattle U. I'd be too scared to try them though. I have a friend who likes smoking the skins, but I'm not sure about that either..
