Amanita citrina var. alba (NL: Witte knolamaniet / EN: White false death cap / DE: Weisser Knollenblätterpilz / FR: Amanite citrine (variété blanche)) is a frequently occurring form of Amanita citrina which differs only in being white throughout. Less strongly smelling than A. citrina, but still disagreeable to taste, inedible to be avoided easily confused with the deadly Amanitas.

@Aubélia: Dank je, Aubelia. Morgen net dezelfde groep vanuit een totaal ander standpunt - totaal andere foto ... Ik vond deze wel een beetje de mystieke bos-sfeer weergeven. Fijne dag voor je !

Heel mooie compositie, de detaillering van de paddestoel is haarscherp en de achtergrond weerspiegelt de tijd van het jaar heel knap. Prachtig en 5* waard.
