Carrot amanita

Fungi: Basidiomycota: Agaricomycetes: Agaricales: Amanitaceae: Amanita daucipes (Sacc.) Lloyd, 1898

Amanita daucipes – carrot amanita

Synonyms: Agaricus daucipes, Amanitopsis daucipes, Aspidella daucipes.

Common names: carrot amanita, Carrot-foot Amanita.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Amanita daucipes is a species of fungus in the Amanitaceae family of the Agaricales order of mushrooms. Found exclusively in North America, the mushroom may be recognized in the field by the medium to large white caps with pale orange tints, and the dense covering of pale orange or reddish-brown powdery conical warts on the cap surface. The mushroom also has a characteristic large bulb at the base of its stem with a blunt short rooting base, whose shape is suggestive of the common names carrot-footed Lepidella, carrot-foot Amanita, or turnip-foot Amanita. The mushroom has a strong odor that has been described variously as "sweet and nauseous", or compared to an old ham bone, or soap. Edibility is unknown for the species, but consumption is generally not recommended due its position in the Amanita subgroup Lepidella, which contains some poisonous members.
