The appearance of the mushroom

At a young age, the white grebe has an ovoid body shape. As it grows and ages, it is divided into a sharply marked leg and a hat, covered with a film. The upper part of the fungus in diameter grows to 4-16 cm. It has an olive, greenish or grayish color. The edge of the cap is smooth, the surface is fibrous to the touch.

The flesh of a fly agaric smelly has a fleshy structure, when pressed does not change color. The plates are light, freely located and soft in structure.

A description of the white grebe is impossible without mentioning its legs. Amanita smelly has a long leg up to 16 cm in length and up to 3 cm in diameter. A cylindrical shape with a thickened base, a whitish color with a moire image, and also a distinct free Volvo with lobar division, characterized by a white color, are typical for it. The width of this part reaches 4-5 cm, it can be immersed in the soil.

Spore powder, like other parts of the fungus, is colored pale. The old white fly agaric has an unpleasant sugary aroma.

Double mushrooms

According to the description, double grebe is typical for white grebe, found among edible and poisonous species. Of the edibles, green russula, a float, a green row of mushrooms and champignon are isolated, and of the inedible ones, an amanita mushroom.

  1. Edible green russula is characterized by the typical color of the upper part, a dense leg. The diameter of the hat reaches 15 cm, under dry conditions, it is characterized by luster. With age, it acquires a brown color. It is easy to distinguish from a white grebe: the russula has a different cut and there is no whitish ring.
  2. Champignon, or edible chilli, is similar to the immature fruit bodies of a fly agaric smelly. Its upper part in diameter usually does not exceed 8–9 cm, is painted white, has a scaly shape, and is dry and non-slimy to the touch.
  3. In the green row, the hat is dense, grows up to 12 cm. In mature representatives, the upper part is raised, the integumentary tissue is smooth. This mushroom is often confused with a poisonous reducer, however, the grebes have white plates, and greenfinches are green or yellow. The leg of the row is shortened.
  4. The float is classified as a fly agaric, it is better to be careful when collecting it, since both a fly agaric and some other representative are masked under it. The edges of the upper part are uneven. The mushroom is odorless. Edible representatives have no ring on the leg.
  5. The grebe-like fly agaric is similar to the reducer under consideration. It has a thick hat - up to 13 cm in diameter. It is easy to confuse it with a white grebe because of the similar color of the hat. The plates and spore powder are white.

White Toad Poisoning

Poisoning with a white reducer is characterized by several stages of development. This pathology manifests itself only after a day or two, because by this time the mucous membrane of the intestinal tract is affected, which provokes acute pain, diarrhea and nausea, followed by vomiting. The next stage of poisoning involves an imaginary improvement, but at this time the disease does not subside. At the final stage, the problems with the kidneys and liver are most acute, which is why the person soon dies.

With the following symptoms of poisoning, you must immediately contact a medical institution: vomiting, intestinal colic, abdominal pain, thirst, diarrhea with bloody discharge, pallor, cramps, decreased body temperature, muscle pain, impaired visual activity, weak pulse.

To provide first aid to the victim, a stomach is washed with boiled water with salt or potassium permanganate. Also, one should not forget about the action of activated carbon. The invaluable help of milk thistle is proved. To make an antidote, a teaspoon of grass is poured with boiling water, steamed for half an hour, insisted with further filtering and given to the patient three times a day for a third of a glass.


Pale fly agaric is the most poisonous and therefore the most dangerous mushroom in the world. It is banned for use, even despite not yet fully confirmed beneficial properties. Application in homeopathic treatment is carried out only under the supervision of medical professionals. With the timely detection of the symptoms of poisoning, it is necessary to call an ambulance and provide medical care so that the victim can overcome the disease. You can’t do nothing, because a person can quickly die.
