White, pale ivory floccose-appendiculate cap margin (fragments of the partial veil).
Creamy to touch.
Found in Andalucia, Spain.
The stem is covered with tufts of soft hair – “floccose” – with the consistency of lightly whipped cream.
10-20/30 cm wide cap.
Note the floccose-appendiculate cap margin.
Edible but said to be unpleasant.
Can be mistaken for the poisonous Amanita proxima.
(However, both immature and mature specimens of the A. proxima have a brownish volva).
