Have a question this is a the place for you.
This mushroom (toadstool) is called the fly agaric, although it is an amanita mushroom. It is rather unmistakeable Don’t eat it. The “Death cap” is deadly poisonous amanita
To stay clear of this and the fly agaric “Don’t eat mushrooms with white gills”. They both grow from a mushroom egg (volva) and the white spots are from the top of the egg. With the rule of “don’t eat mushrooms with white gills” would avoid the mushroom (False parasol) below. Some posionous mushrooms have non-white gills.
The false parasol apparently doesn’t occur in the South East of England.
Below is an “edible” parasol I found in a field. (a) Size matters…ensure your mushroom is over 12cm as umbrella looking mushrooms below 12cm may be poisonous (Dapperlings). The parasols can be over 20cm. (b) The gills in the cap are white. The false parasol has green spores where you see green tinge on the gills (above). (c) The white double ring on the stem moves up and down on the stem. However, there is a look-alike in the UK called the “Shaggy parasol” which grows over 12cm. This makes some people (1 in 25) ill. Importantly if you cut the shaggy parasol the stem stains pink.
However the stem of the shaggy parasol and the false parasol are consistent and a single colour
(d) Importantly below the ring you get a snake-like colouring (Stretch-mark) caused by the rapid growth….This apparently indicates a Parasol. Cap was nice in Breadcrumbs.
As always with mushrooms….If in doubt chuck it out…Don’t eat anything you are not sure of.
