Found at Hydon's Ball and Heath, Godalming, Surrey.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Do you have photo's of the gills top of the stem ,it would help if your photo was the right way round too.Also what type of tree's were near it as this all helps with the identification,I don't think its A.phalloides but would need more information to get the correct identification
It might still be death cap but do agree that more info would be useful as there are a few other amanitas that look rather like this.
do you remember if it had any greenish hints or were there others nearby with greenish hint or were they all brown.
Thanks for your help! Only took one photo I'm afraid - so realise it is hard to ID.
It was growing in mixed decidous woodland, mixture of Pine and Oak. It had a slightly greeny tinge to it, but it was the only one nearby. I thought it might be a Panthercap perhaps?
I might go for A. vaginata. Fenwickfield, did you say you had the Amanita book, that might give some more helpful hints as to which species
Without other photos it is difficult but the striate margin of the cap makes me agree with A vaginata
Yes I do have a book on them but in order to use it correctly you need the right information to be able to key it out plus I am a beginner so the book doesn't turn me into an expert which is a shame.
You are doing pretty well for a "beginner" so don't put yourself down.
