Mushrooms containing the isoxazole derivatives, ibotenic acid and muscimol, are known for their neurologic effects. Amanita muscaria is an easily identified member of this group. It has an orange or red cap with white warts (remnants of the universal veil present in young specimens) as well as a ring (annulus) and cup (volva) on the stem. Amanita pantherina, another member of the group, is 5 to 14 cm in length and diameter, with a white to brown cap and with the ring and cup on the stem. Both specimens grow under trees in woodlands throughout North America.
