I am planning to go hunting for some Amanita Muscaria mushrooms around [coastal South Africa] (quite a few reports stated that there were a few places that these things grow naturally), and I was wondering:
What are there precautions to take when picking between Amanita muscaria (Red with white spots) and other ones (that I found out about on the internet last night) namely stuff like Amanita muscaria var Formosa (I only know that they have orange/yellow caps) or Amanita muscaris var guessowii?
I'm so confused with this scientific naming stuff haha....
Personal experience wll also be greatly appreciated!!
