You don’t need to rewrite your will if you eat this one. Just be prepared to worship the porcelain god for a day or two. It grows in yards, and looks like something you might want to eat. It is definitely not. While the gills are white when it’s fresh, it drops green spores. These are really fresh. There are edible look-alikes, but none have green spores.
The rains accompanying Hurricane Irene produced lots of mushrooms, but not many to eat. At least not where I looked. Below are two not generally known to be deadly species that will make you rather sick if you eat them. One grows in lawns and the other grows attached to dead or dying oak trees and stumps. Do you know what these mushrooms are?
The one that grows in lawns will produce a green spore print. But it’s not always obvious by looking. No shortcuts! Do the print. And don’t eat what you don’t know.
If you don’t know how to do spore prints, just ask.
