Rare deadly mushroom shows up in Victoria — 2 Comments

  1. The only thing I have to add is that I don’t believe the Death Cap is particularly rare. I think they grow quite pervasively in the entire region. Maybe a mycology expert can correct me though.

  2. Easily peeled? I don’t think that is a good sign that a mushroom is edible. You can easily peel almost any of them if you wanted to. There are a few which have a slimy film over them – i.e. Rosy Gomphidius; you have to peel off the slime or you will have a slimy soup in the pot! We have seen a few of these in our foraging and have always left them alone – pretty though.
