Macrolepiota clelandii

Recommended Posts

These are popping up around this time. 


I was walking with a German friend and he was keen to try them, convinced they would be similar to a European parasol. I said that although I've read about people eating them, they're not officially listed as edible. We didn't eat em in the end


Being similar to M. procera, if accidental acute poisonings were possible you'd think it would be well documented by now. My main concern with this mushroom is the unknown concentration of mycotoxins such as agaritine.


What's the verdict, are these good to eat? :shroomer:


Also, does anyone know how a mushroom species becomes 'officially' regarded as edible?
