    • You should NOT assume the mushrooms featured in any of these photogalleries are edible. Most will NOT be edible.

      Never eat any mushroom until you have positively identified the species and know from credible academic sources or reference texts that they are safe to consume.

      Be safe! If there is any doubt do not consume.
