Amanita Vaginata

Amanita Vaginata

 

a mushroom of the family Agaricaceae. The cap is initially bell-shaped, later flattening with a nodule in the center. It is ribbed along the edge and may be gray, white, brown, or pinkish yellow. The gills are white and not adnate to the white stipe. Amanita vaginata grows in coniferous and deciduous forests; it is also encountered amid shrubbery and in the tundra. The mushroom is widely distributed but in small numbers. Although it is edible, it usually is not gathered and processed owing to its low quality. The mushroom is easily distinguished from other species of Amanita by the absence of a ring on the stipe.
