    #944217 - 10/08/02 11:38 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I would like to experiment with Amanita muscaria, but only know where Amanita muscaria var formusa grows..

What is the problem with ingesting Amanita muscaria var. formosa compared to Amanita muscaria?

Also much more difficult ID. The red mucaria are easy to ID, the other colors look like a lot of other Amanitas.

Happy mushrooming!

yeah, my pulse rate increases just thinkin about someone else eating one.
shiver.
the regular guys are easy, so easy, to id.
but the formosa, whew.
they say that the formosa have more amatoxins and less good stuff.
i would find a source for the regular ones, if you are set on eating some.
take your time, be patient.
i'm considering harvesting a few this season (in a few weeks, the regular, brightcapped guys)
i might be persuaded to send you some dried specimens, if i were relatively assured you werent a complete nutcase and all that.
also, they are legal and available over the net.
do some searching.
peace.
