This website includes information concerning identification and the edibility of wild mushrooms, but it is not intended to be a manual for their safe consumption. Anyone wanting to eat wild mushrooms needs to be absolutely 100% sure of their identification and should consult an experienced person in mushroom edibility before eating any wild mushroom, especially if they do not feel confident in making that ID. This site cannot be responsible for any undesirable outcomes that occur if a person decides to eat wild mushrooms.

To the best of the author’s knowledge the information on this site is as accurate as possible, but no mushroom should be identified from a picture without having expert knowledge about that mushroom.

Every effort has been made to advise the user that caution is needed concerning the edibility of wild mushrooms. Eating wild mushrooms can be risky. Many factors including misidentification, contamination, individual sensitivities and allergic reactions, inability to digest them, and other reactions to wild mushrooms that are consumed are possible and beyond our control.

The danger of accidental poisoning will be minimized if this website is used properly, but the author cannot accept any responsibility for adverse reactions that may result from eating wild mushrooms. Remember, you must be 100% sure of your identification if you plan to eat a wild mushroom. Otherwise, when in doubt, throw it out.
