Fly Agaric/Fly Amanita, Amanita muscaria

Native throughout the temperate and boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, Amanita muscaria has been unintentionally introduced to many countries in the Southern Hemisphere, generally as a symbiont with pine plantations, and is now a true cosmopolitan species. (Wikipedia) It is generally considered poisonous.

 

Common names come from old practice of sprinkling this very poisonous mushroom into milk for use as an insecticide. Ottawa Co., MI USA. September 27
