    This list doesn't include all species of amanita mushrooms, which I was taught are highly deadly (although usually pretty distinctive as well) - so I really don't trust its accuracy as far as "guarantee that one isn't going to collect something life-threatening". unless you're only talking about the subset of mushrooms that grow in a particular area....

    the fact is, any amanitas with a red or orange cap are really easy to distinguish from other mushrooms due to their features - the color, the white specks left on the cap after the volva bursts, the large "cup" at the base of the stipe. the only situation where i could see them being mistaken for an edible species would be if one were out to collect the caesar mushroom or coccoli, which also belong to the amanita family and look extremely similar.

    perhaps it would have been best to add: never attempt to collect or eat any of the edible amanitas unless you are an expert.

    and i wouldn't call most amanitas "deadly". the deadly ones are the death cap (amanita phalloides), the destroying angels (amanita verna, amanita virosa, amanita bisporigera) and a few other species, the majority of which have no such distinctive traits - they are either white or have a dull grayish/greenish/brownish cap. it may be easy to confuse them with a harmless mushroom, such as the gypsy mushroom, field mushrooms, some brittlegills etc., and this is where the main danger is. other amanitas are mildly to moderately (occasionally seriously) toxic but not exactly deadly.

    there ya go. I guess it was obvious, but I always hate absolute rules that are missing things, even if they are obvious things.

    Beautiful! I've seen some like the picture on the bottom on a walk before. I was thinking of starting a mushroom enthusiasts' thread here; do you think we should ( @bluestripes, @AphroditeGoneAwry, @earthtrekker1775), and sort of merge it with this one? I just found, correctly identified, and ate an oyster mushroom from a large cluster near campus. I'm going to go back in the morning and harvest more.

    That could be cool, especially with pics...but I hear there are sooo many varieties that it's almost maybe necessary to go by region?

    this thread is more psychedelic than super mario bros.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    That last one is so blue that it's pulling me in. o.o

    I want to lick it. It's hypnotic.
