Jackson's Slender Caesar

Amanita jacksonii


Bright red emergent looks somewhat like a red egg or tomato. The cap turns orange except at the center as the mushroom ages. When it starts to decompose it has a foul smell.


Deciduous forest


Also sometimes called American Caesar, because of its similarity to the European Amanita caesarea.
