White False Deathcap Amanita citrina var. alba (Gillet) Rea (illustrated 30% life size) This is a frequently occurring form of A. citrina (above), which differs only in being white throughout. It is less strong-smelling than A. citrina, but still disagreeable to taste, and although not poisonous it is still best avoided, since it is easily confused with the deadly Amanitas.
