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.
rather than trying to nail it to a variation.
Sometimes the picklist can be a little tricky, and once the ident is saved you can't change it.
Would be nice to have a short window of grace to delete idents ~ say something as short as 5 minutes or once someone else has revised the id ~ whichever is shorter. To remove mistakes.
A.rubescens var.rubescens IS Blusher. This is not however. Clearly visible is a volval sack and at a push a slight gutter. In addition stem not cap coloured even slightly and is covered in silky tufts. Should of returned to site to get pic when better developed.
All given ID's are subject to error/ommissions. Please seek independent verification before acting on ANY advice given. BE SAFE =)
A.rubescens var. rubescens is a form of blusher ~ I presume its the stock form as opposed to annosulfurea, but I wasn't intending to be that specific.
They are amanita so they *do* have a volval sack, its just that its rarely intact when uprooted. The photograph looks well within the normal blusher ground colour, bruising isn't always apparent, though there appears to be hints of it on the stem in your picture.
I can't see the ring so don't know if it had striations. A.phalloides doesn't normally have remnants like this. I guess a.gemmata (or whatever its called now) isn't beyond the realms of possibility..
Yes A.phalloides was a stupid suggestion in hindsight.
there are several species I have yet to consider as still not convinced with blusher.
