When young, the cap is spherical or ovoid. As it grows, it opens and flattens, and can reach very varied shapes from flattened depressed to slightly umbonate. The cuticle, which is initially smooth, soon tears forming large cottony scales of dark brown to reddish color, easily separable, on a very fibrillose background of gray-cream color, in the center is darker and less scaly.
The paler, cream-white lamellae are wide and tight and do not touch the foot and welded to a collar. The foot, of the same color as the cap, is separable and is provided with a double ring that can be made to run up and down. The flesh, soft and whitish in the cap and very fibrous in the stem, with a soft and fruity smell, has a taste similar to hazelnuts.
However, this mushroom should not be confused with Macrolepiota rhacodes, which apparently in small quantities is not usually toxic. With the exception of the more dubious edibility, Macrolepiota rhacodes var. bohemica, hortensis and derivatives, where you can see a reddish hue when cut in the first, for example, although they are distinguished by their smaller height.

It has the typical shape of the Amanitas, with a ring around the foot and a vulva around the base. Its most characteristic color is olive green, although yellowish and even almost white specimens can be found. The lamellae are white with greenish reflections and the foot is white.
The vulva may be covered by leaf litter and not be visible at first sight. For this reason, in the case of Amanites and other mushrooms that can be confused, they should be plucked whole, since the existence of the vulva and its appearance are very important characteristics for the correct identification of the species.
The first symptoms of intoxication do not appear until a few hours after ingestion of the mushrooms, usually about 8 to 10 hours. The first symptoms are gastrointestinal with intense diarrhea, continuous vomiting and dehydration. Later on, nervous and hepatic disorders and worsening of the general condition occur.
Some mushrooms of the cortinaris group are very toxic and can even be fatal. Symptoms of intoxication do not appear until a few days after consumption, usually between two and fifteen days; the most important symptoms are tiredness, intense thirst with dry mouth and lips, burning sensation on the tongue, loss of appetite, headache and kidney and liver disorders.
