The Deathcap has an olive green to brownish cap, which is hemispherical in the young fruiting body, then arched to flat in the older fruiting body. In the white form of this species, the cap may be pure white. The underside of the cap has white gills. These are covered by a partial veil in the young fruiting body, which remains in the form of a smooth or grooved ring on a cylindrical shaft in older fruit. The stipe is of varying deep green colour on a white ground. When young, the fruiting body is enveloped by a white universal veil, the remnants of which remain on the adult as a white volva at the base of the stipe. The flesh is white. The Deathcap is a deadly poisonous mushroom. It is abundant in deciduous forests and can be found alone or in groups under oaks, hornbeams, or beeches, for example.
Models of the Deathcap depict different stages of fruiting body development - one model shows a young fruiting body covered by a partial veil and the other a mature fruiting body. An important part of the adult model is the volva, which is only attached to the stipe; sticking it on would prevent the two halves of the fruiting body from separating. The gills, ring, and volva should be painted white, the stipe can be given a slightly green tinge and the hat should be shaded green.
