I would say that's what ya got there after looking through some pics and descriptions, but it's also so similar to muscaria, but yet it is just too yellow, the stem that is....

I found a few more in a different spot the ones above are in a Beech area with pine some popular having really yellow stems

The ones I found today were found near Birch with some spruce in the mix with popular ... have to re size the new pictures these stems are more white

some variety in sizes in different groups different ages young ones sometimes look larger maybe these are different or the same?

If you eat it, or any of this species in the future, let me know what it taste like? And how do you cook them up?

They are very good.

And how do you cook them up?


You fry them in butter or oil, and cook them well because some of the members of Amanita section Validae are toxic raw.

I am not positive on how or when I will eat them yet ( they are drying in front of a fan iatebadshrooms
If I do I will check back in to let you know :)

.... Thanks Alan I may try them this way (ty just caught your updated post :)

Thanks Arathu I love to share my travels the bottom flash shots are an Idea Alan told me about ... I didnt think it would work well but I am getting better at it its funny when I almost fall over not balanced properly LOL

Here are the rest of the pictures I really like taking pictures of Amanita's There is a bit of a story to go along with this I will add it to Arathu's thread I don't think it quite fits ( not a muscaria ) but I am sure Arathu wouldn't mind amanita muscaria experiments
https://mycotopia.ne...61&d=1341535381
and not they were not sitting in the sun long I was taking advantage of the light they are in front of a fan drying tho some were already dry these are the only ones I took in the last 2 days just what I thought I would use

https://mycotopia.ne...68&d=1341535397
some spores :)

https://mycotopia.ne...70&d=1341535404
There is a fine layer powdery waxy to the stem it does not bruise but you can leave a finger print in it very well

https://mycotopia.ne...73&d=1341535413
They do leave this yellow material behind in the ground they work their way through the fibers in the moss hard to get them out whole I used a thick knife to wiggle them out :)
And I remembered the ruler :)

The first pic does look pretty cool with the gills visible.

One thing that would make the first pic better is more light on the cap. Try longer exposures, with a little bit of flash. Sometimes I do well with a tripod, half second exposure and just a tiny bit of flash. If you have a tripod you can gather lots of light, set the ISO really low like 100 and the f-stop pretty high so you get good depth of field, and the exposure as long as you need to get the light you want. Sometimes really long like 5 seconds.




A lot of people think that Amanita flavoconia is toxic or too dangerous to try, but I am pretty sure it's edible.

I have eaten the eastern, Amanita flavoconia on several occasions.

Amanita flavoconia var. inquinata is commonly eaten in Mexico.

I will try that Alan :) I do not have a tri pod yet I am looking tho I do not go out of town very often and cannot find any in my town but I am watching most places I go it is hard to carry one when bush whacking but this spot I could have used one lots of room to get around :)

Thanks Estimated prophet :)

The story is pretty funny anyway when we first got there ( me and hubby went with a friend this time ) I told our friend will look around at them all first ( there were a ton of these )
I want to teach our friend to leave some mushrooms in the woods so we looked around at them all first to see which ones we really want to take home we realized we left the doob at home oops oh well .... I got separated from the guys looking around taking pictures I was getting really close to some of them moving them around to look under them without breaking the mushroom I went to a lower spot and circled back.
I usually leave something when I take something from the woods usually tobacco hair etc... This time I needed to pee I wouldn't tell you this detail but I think it can be important to fertilize the things in the woods with urine and with Aminitas urine defiantly is significant well since we had a friend with us I wanted to further myself away from our friend ... I asked the Aminatias the other day when I found them ( I had to pee then too so I asked them where ) they answered it was too late to fertilize the mushrooms since they were fruiting already and we were taking these ones home ( I heard them in my head say the blueberries need it more than we do ) I realized that if I fertilize the blue berries they in turn will fertilize the mushrooms too when the uneaten berries fall tot the ground
So I wasnt surprised when they told me to water the blueberries again so I was off to find a blueberry bush well away from our friend in my little walk I couldnt help but feel like I was in the Alice in wonderland movie sounds silly but the setting was similar trails bunches of trees everything looks similar but different at the same time I looked too long to take a pee about 20 mins but I couldnt find the perfect spot I think this in only a girl thing lol anyway ...
I almost run into this spider web I felt like I should go one way around it but I went the other way instead I stepped around the spider web and I heard a squeak as a chipmunk was startled scared me he was hiding in the blueberry bush LOL Chipmunks are an important animal for me at the moment so I knew I was going in the right direction but I kept going I didnt want chippy to bite my but lol
I kept going into the woods a little more being guided or pulled to the right I went around the corner and seen some important moss I was looking for to collect I realized this is what I was looking for and seen some blueberry bushes too
so I did my business and realized this moss wasnt ready to pick but I know where to look for it now so I was happy :)
On my way back I was looking for the guys I seen a few very beautiful mushrooms but didnt pick any just took pictures
I found the guys at the spot where we started out me and hubby had a mushroom each from the other day so we decided to only pick one more each the ones we picked were already dried in the sun with no brown spots on the top and no flys under them :)
The guys found one the plumb baby one that was missing its stem ( someone could have accidentally kicked it off ) our friend had a fondness for this one so I told him me and my hubby had two each he was to pick one more out he didnt like the ones that we were near so he walked a little further and found the other plump baby one that I had just seen it was like he was drawn that way to find that other one that looked like his first one there were only 2 like this one that I seen and he was drawn to them I let him know that this was very important as these little ones call to you to chose the one that was meant for you just as they drew me to the moss and to the blueberry patch ( blueberry leaves are important medicine for my eyes ) So I made sure later in my walk that I would eat some blueberry leaves :) I found some without flowers or berries as they are better tasting leaves b4 they get flowers or berries they tasted like sour apples :)
I have a feeling the Aminitas call me into the woods to find them and let me know what I am allowed to take and not take either for study or to eat :)
When I was spending time in wounder land just after spending close time with these mushrooms taking pictures I felt really light headed standing up too quick with little food in my belly dizzy feeling when I would first stand up that feeling only lasted a min but it was the same feeling when I found the Brown Aminita last year both were really hot days and you could tell the Aminatias were drying in the heat of the sun ( I think I remember that one of the chemicals in Aminitas evaporates to form another chemical when it drys?) The brown one last year you could tell by the staining brown on the stem and base that something was evaporating being really close I could be breathing this in
The funny thing is that the first day finding these we smoked a dube so I can see why they were taking to me but this time we left the dube at home and they were still talking to me I am sensitive to the environment all the time anyway so I do not mind listing to the plants and mushrooms it is a feeling they give you that is hard to explain :) Take this one not that one etc...
Just as I have a feeling to dry these b4 I cook them and If I do become brave enough to try them I will wait to the time when it is right to try them
When I was looking for info on this group yesterday I found out my Brown Aminita from last year is in the same group as these was kind of weird but I understand with the feelings they belong to the same group too
I think I was meant to meet with these sober this time cause when we picked out our mushrooms and started digging them up we found the dube :) hehe :rasta:

hehe oh ya another pretty plant was growing with these in both locations a plant I only seen once b4 and there were manny of them this is also special to me as plants had my heart first it sometimes is classed with mushrooms too I think it is pretty special to find these :) the remind me of the link between plants and mushrooms .... I have studdied wild flowers for many many years and have learend a ton more about plants studding mushrooms this very special to me ... the feeling was exctitment playful lol really playful ;)
