    HI, I'm a novice to plant and mushroom identification. I found these beautiful mushrooms growing near my house in Vancouver BC, and I think that they are Amanita muscaria. Does anyone agree?

    I am new to mushrooms.. but I can across a similar mushroom that I also thought might be a subspecies of the same. it was located in south central saskatchewan.

    Does anyone recognize it?

    I also concur with Aminita species, either A.muscaria or might be A.pantherina. Both poisonous, but relished by squirrels. They get huge here on the B.C. coast.
     
  5. The first pictures are Amanita muscaria muscaria. The second Amanita is probably not a muscaria. there are several amanitas that color but Amanita pantherina is a good guess.

    Not fatal except in extreme cases because they have consciousness altering effects.
