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!
I’ve seen many of these Fly Amanita mushrooms growing along the trails here on Cape Cod. They can be yellow or orange and are about 6″ tall with an umbrella-shaped cap with flakey white warts. They grow in the woods and pastures.
Watch out! These Fly Amanita are deadly poisonous, so don’t go near them!
This is the first mushroom that I have seen in my yard here on Cape Cod. It is white and about 4″ in diameter with little raised brown spots on it.
I am not very good at identifying mushrooms. Does anyone know what kind of mushroom this is?
Here is another one of the interesting mushrooms that I have found lately. Again, I’ve tried to identify it, but can’t seem to find it.
Most of the mushrooms that I’ve researched attach themselves directly to trees. This one is growing in the dirt.
Can anyone help me identify this mushroom?
I’ve found some really interesting mushrooms lately here on Cape Cod and am having a hard time identifying them.
I’ve looked at tons of images in my nature books and on the internet but can’t seem to find this one. It was growing directly in the dirt.
Does anyone know what kind of mushroom this is?
