what you have there is very likely a very poisonous member of the amanita family. what does the base of the mushroom look like?

Based on your description, definitely an Amanita. To try and guess species we need to know what the volva looks like and, if you've got some Melzer's handy, whether the spores are amyloid or not. Assuming you don't have any Melzer's, could you post a photo of the base of the stem with the volva? Dig up the base of the stem to make sure you don't leave part of it.

Happy mushrooming!

I denfinately tought it was an amanita I even thought it could be the white a. muscaria variety but, common i didnt even picked it...

But some days before a friend picked one of those mushies because if seen from above it looked identical to the faded p. cubensis variety, and also the unopened mushroom was exactly the same as p. cubensis but with the typical amanita flakes, the volva was not big, merely a millimeter or 2 bigger than the cap, the flesh of stem and volva where smooth, and the white ring on the stem looked scaly. Thats all my info the picture was taken some weeks ago but forgot to post it, and now no more of this mushroom are growing out there

Hello AirDog Dude,

I just love these mexican mushrooms.

..my first guess would be a type of Amanita.
-Definately not Am. muscaria though..

..Mexico must truly be the Shroomiest place on earth.

-I have to acquire all new mushroom identification books and am sorry for not having any positive data on peoples mushroom photos as of late...

I does not appear to be a very complicated form of Amanita,, a few seconds of flipping through the pages of the National Audobon Societies Mushroom Identification book would probably land me onto a direct hit.. but, like i says, those books of mine are no longer my own

Recap, definately not Amanita muscaria or any variations of that specie..
Most likely a nice poison mushroomy.

Gotta love them all though,
Keep on shroomin,
And as always stay in touch Airdoggy,
GG
