Remarkable to have such a killer that appears to be an innocent and edible little plant. Something to teach every child about.

Yes we really have to be aware of which wild mushrooms we can or can not it. Thanks for posting Agnes

With such an abundant variety of mushrooms here in the Pacific Northwest, i wouldn't dream of playing Russian Roulette by picking any...leave it to the experts.
And yes, please teach the children!

They should teach this in every classroom so there won't be more fatalities. I can see how someone would see this as the kind to eat.

Fungi can develop some interesting strategies for protecting themselves and spreading their spores... Some like the common morel expect their fruiting bodies to be eaten to spread their spores, while others discourage eating with poisons and/or nasty smells and tastes and spread their spores on the wind. Learn which is which from a pro, don't chance a dose of 'Sky'.

Don't eat fungi and plants you don't positively know are edible.
