It may often be found growing near them. It's typically found growing in sandy and acidic soil. There are many various sorts of fly agaric with varying appearances.
Fly agaric fruiting bodies emerge from the soil looking sort of a white egg covered within the velum's white warty material. Dissecting the mushroom will expose a characteristic yellowish layer of skin under the veil, which assists in identification. Because the fungus grows, the red color appears through the rent veil, and therefore warts subsided prominently; they are doing not change in size but are reduced relative to the expanding skin area.
The cap changes from globose to hemispherical, and eventually to plate-like and flat in mature specimens. Adult, the brilliant red cap is typically around 8–20 cm (3–8 in) in diameter, although more abundant examples are found. After emerging from the bottom, the cap is roofed with numerous Pieris rapae to yellow pyramid-shaped warts. These are remnants of the velum, a membrane that encloses the whole mushroom when it's still very young.
The free gills are white, as is that the spore print. The oval spores measure 9–13 by 6.5–9 μm and are non-amyloid. That is, they are doing not turn blue with the appliance of iodine.
The stipe is white, 5–20 cm high (2–8 in) by 1–2 cm (0.4–0.8 in) wide, white, cylindrical, usually slightly felty-scaly, and well-developed white or yellow-edged ring or annulus. Between the basal velum, remnants and gills are remnants of the velum (which covers the gills during development) within the sort of a white ring. It is often quite extensive and flaccid with age. There's generally no associated smell aside from a light earthiness.
