Mushrooms of Utah is dedicated to the amateur mushroom collector who may wish to eat some of the mushrooms you’ve found. We will attempt to inform participants on various aspects of toxicity. In some cases, we will describe possible effects and let you make the choice whether or not to eat a particular mushroom. In no case will we indicate a mushroom is edible if there are any known risks to health. M of U will be a place where we can openly discuss edibility of mushrooms without repercussion.
We will attempt to help identify any mushroom posted on this page. We will also, on request, suggest whether you should eat this mushroom or not. Bear in mind, there is no rule of thumb to tell a poisonous mushroom from an edible one. You must know the specific identity of any mushroom.
