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
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."

The largest portion of this mushroom's basal bulb
develops above ground. This specimen was 10 inches tall,
