Behind the scenes

  • The deathcap mushroom (Amanita phalloides) is believed to be the cause of most mushroom-related poisonings worldwide, as it resembles edible mushrooms.[1]
  • Much more well-known to folklore and magical superstition is the Fly Agaric Mushroom (Amanita muscaria), a cousin of the deathcap, recognisable worldwide for its bright red cap with white spots.
