LOVELY BUT LETHAL

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

AU­TUMN al­ways brings great crops of mush­rooms and toad­stools. Many are highly toxic. The whitespot­ted, crim­son- domed Fly Agaric mush­room is now ap­pear­ing in most parts of Tas­ma­nia, of­ten be­neath sil­ver birch trees. The at­trac­tive but sin­is­ter colours should be a warn­ing, as this species of cap fungi is highly poi­sonous, es­pe­cially to young chil­dren.
