Top 3 most deadly mushrooms

Mushrooms can be delicious but they can also extremely dangerous. In this article we are going to explore the top 10 most poisonous mushrooms in the world and how you can go about avoiding them.

  1. Destroying Angel is very similar to that field mushroom that has a whiter appearance. You can distinguish this mushroom from the field mushroom because it is usually in season between August and October, it's typical features include gills which are never grey or brown and they also have a veil around the volva.
  2. The ominously named Death Cap is in season between July and October. The most distinguishing feature this is its olive-green cap which is lighter than margin, the stem is always hollow and branded like a snakeskin. The Death Cap is sometimes confused with the Charcoal Burner, but good way to check the difference is charcoal burners have waxy gills.
  3. Another, commonly misidentified, deadly mushroom is the Funeral Bell and the two toned Pholiota. The Funeral Bell usually forms dense carpets and their stems form individually, there is also a smell  of flour which the two toned Pholiota does not smell of.
