The panther cap (Amanita pantherina) is quite common in Estonia from July to October. The panther cap always grows alone and can be found in coniferous forests, especially in sandy dune pine forests and wooded heaths. The mushroom cap is around 5-12 centimetres wide, has a hazel brown tone, is sticky with a clearly striate margin and is mostly covered with small snow-white tufts. The stipe is 5-12 cm, white in colour, up to 2 cm in width and stuffed, later hollow. The ring is always smooth on top. The gills are snow white. The flesh of the whole mushroom is white.
