    Nice and professionally made shot. Just a little background shimmers.

    Left row, 2nd & 3rd from the bottom is edible (I eat) Amanita Rubescens!

    The name (rubescens) comes from the reddish color of the lower part of the stalk, which makes it very easy to identify.

    It is poisonous only in its raw state. Toxin is destroyed by cooking. and is located mostly in the cap foreskin, which can peel off before usage. I’m not peeling.

    Thank you for sharing this photo.

      Thank you very much for the comment and info! Due to the similar looks of Amanita rubscens and Amanita pantherina I would however advise anyone less knowledgable to be very careful. I actually was not aware of this species so thanks for pointing it out! Next time I will certainly look more closely for a red color of the flesh. However, on the photo it is probably missleading as in reality it was rather pale.
