This species usually grows at a somewhat higher elevation, near coniferous trees, although it can sometimes also be found in lower parts, near beeches and similar trees. It grows throughout Europe, Asia and in certain parts of North America.

 

Season

This species grows mostly during september and october, somewhat earlier than the fly agaric.

The royal fly agaric is highly poisonous. However, it is not as poisonous as Amanita phalloides, but is more dangerous than the common fly agaric.

 

Similar species

This species could eventually be confused with the common fly agaric, although the latter is usually more brightly colored, and the stipe, ring and gills are completely white.
