Pale grebe is one of the most dangerous poisonous mushrooms. When poisoning pale toadstool will not be intestinal disorder in most cases death occurs. Therefore, the mushroom has no margin for error.
Most often pale grebe confused with siraiki green. Young mushrooms pale grebes are very similar to mushrooms.
However, to distinguish the pale toadstool from edible fungi quite easy.
1. Very typical leg pale grebes: it has a bulbous thickening at the base and well-expressed Volvo - filmy wrap in the lower part of the leg. It is formed after the break-up covers that protect young mushroom. In the upper part of the stem has a filmy ring - the remainder of the same blankets.
On this basis, pale grebe easy to distinguish from Russula: she never tuber on the leg (although small thickness and can be) and volvi.
The pale grebes leg has a bulbous thickening, surrounded saccular Volvos.
In the upper part of the stem has a filmy "skirt". The syroezhek leg straight and level.
2. Plate on the bottom of the heads of russule always white.
On this basis, pale grebe different from mushrooms: he has a plate of pink, and with age become brown. But do not forget that when the color plates, especially in young mushrooms, a cruel joke with you can play inexperience, the lighting, the subjectivity in determining the hue, mushroom passion and so on.
To distinguish the pale toadstool from the mushrooms don't look at the leg - they have these mushrooms are similar.
Different color plates: mushrooms from pink young to old brown,
the pale toadstool is always white.
To eliminate the risk, do not collect small, individually growing mushrooms. The age of these fungi is not possible to determine precisely the grounds on which the mushrooms differ from pale toadstool.
The opinion of an experienced mushroom pickers:
1. The genus Amanita (Amanita) mystical, and not always in a good way. In particular, if we talk about the pale grebe. In fact, strictly speaking, similar species does not exist. Amanita phalloides - the fungus is very peculiar, the entanglement lends itself with difficulty.
And yet loud poisoning follow one another. In the Voronezh region, say, mushrooms already banned by law, and still are poisoned. I think the point here is this. Pale grebe is a very beautiful mushroom. Perhaps the most beautiful. It is a real work of art. This is a masterpiece. No crooked warty pogodnosti. Solid aesthetics. Especially beautiful young radical green instances: geometrically adjusted hemispherical cap, dark green with ingrown dark veins, the correct thickness of the leg with soft greenish patterns, neat white ring... Instinct and chirps: "Eat me!". And after all, eat... *
2. And my advice, no offense: if you ask: "How do you tell mushrooms from toadstools?" - it is better not to collect mushrooms and similar fungi. Whatever it was, in the forest many other worthy of your attention fungi that do not have such a dangerous double!!!*
