You're right; most Amanitas are of at least questionable edibility,
and A. phalloides & A. virosa, etc., account for most fatal mushroom
A. caesaria and A. calyptrata are widely eaten, however. _I_ haven't found
any. If someone is looking for 'exotics', he might want to go for real
exotics, and get into trouble.
