I do not know much about mushrooms but I thought these were pretty cool growing on the side of the tree. Does anyone know what kind they are? Love the vibrant colors!
I have seen these red Fly Agaric mushrooms on most of the trails that I have hiked in the past few weeks. It must be because of the warm, humid and wet weather that we’ve been having. There are mushroom everywhere.
Fly Agaric mushrooms grow to about 6″ tall with a width of 6″. They are umbrella-shaped with flaky white warts. They grow from June through September (although it is now well into October) and they are deadly poisonous.
I wondered why this doesn’t have a lot of white warts, but it says that they sometimes wash off a mature mushroom after a heavy rain.
Have you ever seen a Fly Agaric mushroom?
With all of the wet and humid weather we’ve had this fall on Cape Cod, the mushrooms are growing everywhere. We have so many different species in our wooded yard, I can’t even count them.
I saw this mushroom on one of our hikes through the woods. I’ve done a lot of research and still do not know what it is. Yellow Blusher? Fly Agaric? Can anyone help me with identification?
I loved the sunlight on it. What do you think?
One of my friends just commented that it looks like an American yellow fly agaric.
There are so many mushrooms growing here on Cape Cod this time of year. This large, white Destroying Angel mushroom is part of the Amanita family and is also very poisonous. It grows to about 6″ tall and is entirely white. Its cap is umbrella shaped with ragged edges.
I saw so many of these mushroom at Wiley Park in Eastham but most of them had been knocked over. Did they fall by themselves? Did someone knock them over? Did a dog try to eat it?
Don’t go near them as they are deadly poisonous!
