especially if you eat wild mushrooms!

this is NOT Gomphus clavatus, but hopefully the differences would be far more apparent to someone holding the mushroom in their hand…otherwise, you’d learn your mistake soon enough…and it would undoubtedly be a one trial learning experience, after the two days of explosive diarrhea and projectile vomiting!
