Many mushrooms are poisonous some are deadly poisonous.
We have made every effort to ensure accuracy on this website but, in the end, the responsibility for eating
any mushroom or fungus must rest with the individual; for instance there are people who are allergic to all
species of mushrooms. If you collect any mushrooms to eat make sure that your identification checks out in
every detail. Never eat any wild mushroom until an expert mycologist has checked your identification. Even
when you know a mushroom well weather conditions or animal damage can cause differences in appearance that
could lead to misidentification.
