From Charly, who notes: Getting into a dangerous territory here, this one is poisonous and dangerous. Allegedly also called false blusher in English. Indeed it could be sometimes theoretically mistaken for a blusher, if one were to forget that blushers blush when cut. There is more similar edible mushroom around here (grey spotted Amanita – Amanita excelsa var. spissa) which I did not see this time around. However I do not collect the grey spotted Amanita not for the fear of confounding it with this one, but because I think its taste is rather inferior and it is never trouble to find enough better quality mushrooms when they grow at all – like blushers.
