Hygrocybe punicea


Listed as edible in most books, but poisonous at least to some people!
I know two toadstool-testers who had very unpleasant experiences with it.
It is an efficient concentrator of the malleable metallic element, cadmium,
which is decidedly deleterious when consumed on a regular basis.....DAVID ARORA
