I have seen these in the woods in the summer. I know death cap is very bad to mess around with.

Death Cap

(Amanita phalloides)

These pale, medium-sized mushrooms found throughout North American and Europe are responsible for an estimated 90 percent of mushroom-related fatalities worldwide. They look similar to the edible paddy straw mushroom popular in Asia, but it takes only about half a death cap mushroom to kill an adult. The mushroom causes permanent damage to the kidneys and liver, and some victims require liver transplants to survive the ordeal.

A closely related species is the death angel mushroom (Amanita verna or A. virosa), which is regarded as the most poisonous species. Symptoms may not appear for several hours, which could result in delayed treatment with tragic consequences.

I found out that the Pseudohydnum gelatinosum (Cats Tongue) north of where I live. I got to find this mushroom in the spring. I love mushroom hunting.

WOW, the pictures below are wonderful on the mushrooms. Thanks Jack Black and SunKat! I look forward to this spring to start my search for mushrooms once again. It is always exciting to find all different species.
