Fly Agaric, Berghem, Netherlands This specimen shows that the famous white dots on this species are not part of the texture of the cap, instead they are remains of the protective cover that was developed underground. A bit of rain will easily wash them away.  Amanita muscaria,Berghem,Europe,Fall,Fly agaric,Geotagged,Maashorst,Netherlands,World Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric, is a poisonous and psychoactive basidiomycete fungus, one of many in the genus Amanita. Native throughout the temperate and boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, Amanita muscaria has been unintentionally introduced to many countries in the southern hemisphere, generally as a symbiont with pine plantations, and is now a true cosmopolitan species.
