Grisette (Amanita vaginata) is an edible mushroom in the Amanitaceae family of fungi. Unlike many other Amanita mushrooms, Grisette lacks a ring on the stem. The cap is gray or brownish, 5 to 10 centimetres in diameter, and has furrows around the edge that duplicate the gill pattern underneath. It has a widespread distribution in North America, and is thought to be part of a species complex that includes other similar-looking Amanitas.
