| Amanita bisporigera
|The Destroying Angel. This mushroom contains toxins that are
deadly poisonous. Found in woods summer and fall. Completely
white, including spore print. This mushroom emerges from a
cup-like sack (volva) and has a skirt-like veil (annulus) that hangs
from the upper stalk.
Rod Tulloss, Amanita expert, says "Amanita bisporigera is a
mushroom that often contains enough amatoxins to kill an adult
human. It is extremely important that this species and its look
alikes become familiar to anyone planning to collect mushrooms
for the table in eastern North America."
