Adding one more Variant into text[edit]

Amanita muscaria var. aureola

I would like to add Amanita muscaria var. aureola into text. Its is still missing, and i made good photo of mushroom. Its very similar to Amanita muscaria var. muscaria but has white circular wrapper, which is clearly visible.[1]. After what i could make FP nomination, must be used before. --PetarM (talk) 17:33, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

I am surprised I had not heard of it. Mycobank says it is legitimate, so add away. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 21:13, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Cas Liber so ...should someone input with some relevant description. --PetarM (talk) 10:08, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Why not have a go yourself. I can clean up formatting later. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 12:15, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Fly agaric[edit]

Does any one know how this fungus got its common name "fly agaric"? If so, it could go in the article. Vorbee (talk) 07:58, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Possible popular culture section[edit]

Well, it looks like the IP hopper is nothing but a troll (assuming they have a triple digit IQ).

Still, even though I generally dislike pop culture sections (as they tend to devolve into unsource lists with the occasional paragraph of fancruft), I could see reason to include sourced discussion of Amanita muscaria being the inspiration for the mushroom in Mario if reliable sources documented it. I doubt we're going to get Nintendo (the Disney of Japan) releasing an official statement saying "yep, Mario's a head, dudes," but I could imagine there being an academic or journalistic source saying "yeah, that's totally it."

Doing a quick glance, I see this history of video games from Feiwel & Friends (a division of Macmillan Publishers) saying "The Super Mushrooms in Mario are based on a fungi called Amanita muscaria." This piece from The Burlington Free Press says that Amanita muscaria is the mushroom from not only Mario, but the Smurfs and Alice and Wonderland.

I'm heading out and working on other stuff when I get back, otherwise I'd look further into it. Ian.thomson (talk) 22:11, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

I already included material in the last bit of the Cultural depictions section. I might expand though. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 03:57, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Should we also add that the mushroom emoji ( 🍄) is modeled after this kind of mushroom? Yegle (talk) 19:54, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

It obviously is but can you find a reliable source stating that? If so then yes, add away. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 20:08, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
