|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."
