Aminita caliptroderma Mushrooms

These.are grown-ups of the young #mushrooms I picked 3 days ago. Aminita caliptroderma. Good!

But be careful. Among the Aminitas is the deadly Aminita phalloides (the death cap) and other very poisonous species. Some mushroom experts advise against eating any Aminitas, for fear of getting the phalloides, which has killed more people in the world than any other mushroom, and melts your liver.

I only ate these after getting an ID from my botanist and fungi expert friend Tomas.
