Wild orange mushrooms

I found these orange-brown wild mushrooms while walking the other morning and has no idea what they are. I checked my Wildlife of Southern Africa book and it wasn't in there. I also checked the internet but the answer seems to be eluding me. Anybody know? Joan probably will.

  1. What beautiful mushrooms - I wonder if they're poisonous? I'll be watching your comments to find out!

  2. I would have loved to help you Jonker but there are no books of mushrooms available and I struggle myself to identify them. I have been searching high and low for something decent so I can learn more about them. Sorry!!

  3. The bright flakey top looks like an Amanita from my part of the world. Not a shroom to be messing with at all. Maybe Joan will know.

  4. whatever you do, don't eat them until you know what they are!
    they are really cool to look at though.
