Variations or avoid?

Post by TawakenedL » Mon Mar 23, 2020 2:33 am

Hi everyone! I have a question about several species in my area that appear to be variations of amanita muscaria var. guessowii and I am wondering if they are the same chemically or completely different. The three in question are amanita flavoconia, amanita frostiana, and amanita elongata. They look so similar and I find them growing in the same areas so I am hoping that someone can clarify this for me. Thanks in advance for all of your help!

I don't have any knowledge on those specific variations but this website has some good info on almost all variations:

Some have more information than others. Also, a Google search might be good too for information.

guessowii is known to contain ibotenic acid and muscimol.
