        This is one is a typical Amanita phalloides. Sometimes at age they take on a more grayish color.
         
        Show some of the Russula next time.

        Wanted to go near Kennedy but dam road was closed keeping from hitting my favorite spot. Decided to go to redwood road and head off in the Chabot area. found some amanitas and these funny looking yellow ones. Lots of mushrooms out there, mostly russulas and lactarius but lots of variety.not sure what would want to munch on the amanita??
