We have a neighbor who sends over pictures of interest from time to time and we received the following:Well I have to admit that it is a beauty and she found it in the swampy area on the other side of the lake. I have been trying to find out something about it and looked at literally 1000 pictures on the internet but so far no luck. i did find one statement of interest:
- There are a large number of people that die from mushroom poisoning each year. “Large” is somewhat ambiguous here. If we are talking about the number of people that go out collecting for mushrooms each year, in this country, then the number of people that die as a result of mushroom poisoning is few relative to that number.
This is very encouraging news. Perhaps there is a mycologist (as Casey Stengel said “You could look it up’) who can identify this beauty.
