|Common name: Carrot Foot. These collection were found in the month of
August in oak/beech woods.
Rod Tulloss, Amanita expert, warns:
"I have been told on a number of occasions that the stipe's bulb is edible.
Considering the poor knowledge of toxins in section Lepidella and the
established fact that kidney and/or liver failure is associated with ingestion of
species in section Lepidella, I cannot recommend that this species be eaten."
