Snakeskin grisette

Amanita ceciliae


The cap has charcoal-grey patches, which are easily removable. The stipe is 7–18 cm long, white in colour, and there is no ring on it. It is slightly tapered to the top, and has irregular cottony bands girdling the base. The universal veil is grey. The mushrooms are considered edible, but field guides typically advise caution in selecting them for consumption, due to risks of confusion with similar toxic species.


Spotted in a small meadow, surrounded of Helm oak trees
