Amanita Muscaria

Found in the Botanical Garden lawn.

Bright red fly agaric from northern Europe and Asia. Cap might be orange or yellow due to slow development of the purple pigment. Wide cap with white or yellow warts which are removed by rain.

Known to be toxic but used by shamans in northern cultures. Associated predominantly with Birch and diverse conifers in forest.

    Saw three in Stanley Park yesterday (one more test) but I think they were fake. Just made of clay I think.
