Just look at the illustration of any fairy story with a number of fairies, elves, gnomes, and other imaginary creations of the writer’s imagination. You are going to see them sitting on toadstools and mushrooms. The Amanita muscaria is one of the easiest recognizable of all these illustrations, because you see it ever so often in illustrations, associated with gnomes. In ordinary terms, this is called a toadstool.
