I found this one growing out the side of a root system of an oak tree, the size was 12-15 cm tall and the cap was about 8-12 cm wide. I hope this ID is right as it looked a little small compared to measurement's in some of my texts.
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.
I have a book the genus Amanita and they say 4-11cm so quite a range in size,very nice specimen you have found.
Thank you, I may have to invest in that book to add to my collection, is that the title? Who wrote it please, thanks again. regards ben
