Poison Oak vines

Amanita phalloides, commonly known as the death cap, is a deadly poisonous basidiomycete fungus, one of many in the genus Amanita. Widely distributed across Europe, A. phalloides forms ectomycorrhizas with various broadleaved trees. In some cases, death cap has been introduced to new regions with the cultivation of non-native species of oak, chestnut, & pine. The large fruiting bodies (mushrooms) appear in summer & autumn; the caps are generally greenish in color, with a white stipe & gills.
