This year, there are many destroying angels in the forests near Schoorl, the Netherlands.

Destroying angel is the English name for the mushroom species Amanita virosa.

It got its name from being poisonous. It looks similar to other fungi species, which are not poisonous.

This is a rare species in the Netherlands; though not in the forests near Schoorl.
