If you are thinking of collecting and eating wild mushrooms then make sure you are certain of the identification.
Death caps are not particuarly common in UK but neither are they rare so if you go out looking for mushrooms there is a fair chance you will eventually come across them. There are a small number of other very poisonous species some of which also resemble edible species.
Many people across the world collect wild mushrooms without any problems but most have a background of tradition and teaching from local experts or books.
