What types of mushrooms are poisonous?



  1. 0 Votes

    “[T]he amanitas, the false morels and a catch-all category known as little brown mushrooms (LBMS)” are the most dangerous types of poisonous mushrooms, and contribute to almost all mushroom-related deaths, according to the Missouri Department of Conservation. The website that I’ve cited provides information on identifying these three types of mushroom. The site also provides information on the Jack O’ Lantern and the green-spored lepiota, which are also poisonous. Avoid all of these mushrooms.

    Amanitas contain amantin, and have been known to poison a mushroom hunter or two. False morels are poisonous to some, but edible to others. Little brown mushrooms (LBMs) might be either edible or toxic – so be careful if you can’t ID a mushroom with positivity! Jack-o-lantern mushrooms are bright orange, and should not be eaten, even though they might smell and taste good.
