Coccora (Amanita calyptroderma)

Coccora (Amanita calyptroderma) is a west coast mushroom characterized by an orange-brown cap which fades to yellow toward the periphery. The large, smooth cap also has a thick, white, cottony patch of universal veil tissue. While this mushroom is considered to be a delicacy to some, the risk of confusion with deadly poisonous Amanita species makes this mushroom a poor choice for consumption for all but the most experienced mycophiles.
