Amanita caesarea (Scop. ex Fr.) Quél. Caesar’s Mushroom, Amanite des Césars, Oronge, Kaiserling, Fungo reale, Ovolo buono, Keizeramaniet, Ou de Reig, Császárgomba (-galóca). Cap 6–18cm across, ovoid or hemispherical becoming expanded convex, clear orange-red, fading or ageing more yellowish, smooth and slightly viscid, finely lined at the margin. Stem 50–120 x 15–25mm, yellow with a large yellow pendulous ring which is often striate, the basal bulb is encased in a large, white bag-like volva. Flesh whitish, distinctly yellow below the cap cuticle. Taste pleasant, smell faint and delicate. Gills free and crowded, yellow. Spore print white to yellowish. Spores elliptical, nonamyloid, 10–14 x 6–11µ. Habitat not yet found in Britain, this species favours open deciduous woodland, especially with oaks, in warm regions. Season summer to autumn. Edible – excellent, this species has been a prized esculent since Roman times and due to its orange-red cap and yellow skin and gills it is not easily confused with others. The European and American form have differences In form and should be treated as different species.In October Spanish markets sell them in large quantities.
Note the picture sent to me by Irene and John Palmer is in fact what was known as the American Caesar's Mushroom, but it has now been given specific rank, it is named Amanita jacksonii. [see on this site].
