Let us all remember that the mushroom is just a fruiting body and not the organism itself.  That seems to be getting lost here with all this 'self-representation' business.

Amanita muscaria should not be eaten.  Can kill you but probably just make you wish you hadn't eaten it.  At least according to the reports I have read.  

Amanita caesarea has a bright red cap and is delicious.

Many of the grisette group of Amanitas are safe and delicious, yet have phalliodes colored caps (but striations on margin and other characters denote grisette group).
