Identifying Amanitas
    #977240 - 10/20/02 04:14 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

Hey, just wondering if there is a safe way to identify Amanita muscaria. I have been told that there are look alikes that can be deadly. I know the Amanitas are toxic, but if I was going to eat any it would be in very small quantities.

So, is there a way or is it easy to tell for sure if you have Amanita muscaria?

Thanks.

There's not many look alikes to Amanita Muscaria, there probably one of easiest mushrooms to id due to it's bright red cap. Amanita caesarea looks similar, but that's edible. Amanita Muscaria is toxic and can kill you if you don't prepare it correctly so read up if you want to try it. Haven't tried it myself but from what I've heard most people don't like it.

A. muscaria var. muscaria is realy easy to id. oven drying is the only way to go IMO. you have to be a little more careful with the formosa variety but all you have to do is know your shit. read up on amanitas and distinguishing features between types (ie: veil and stipe base) so there's no mistake.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
