BEP Mushrooms

The Death Cap (Amanita phalloides) is a deadly poisonous mushroom that smells dreadful. It reputedly tastes good, and the symptoms of illness don't show up for many hours or even a day. The cap is often a metallic green-grey or beige color. The stem usually has a long veil or ring, and it grows up out of an egg-shell like volva. It is frequently found under oaks.
