Amanita pantherina

Edibility, habitat and observations

Relationship with the surrounding plant environment: symbiote mushroom. It is found in the heaths and forests of both conifers and broad-leaved trees, in summer-autumn.
TOXIC, although not fatal (very serious if you ingest large quantities). The poisonings are neurotropic and similar toAmanita rubescens (edible species if eaten cooked) which, however, does not show streaks on the edge of the hat and whose flesh assumes a rosy-vinous color when cut.
