When my husband handed me a heavy bag with this large white mushroom, I at first thought that it might be a matsie, as it had an oddly spicy scent. that would have been a bad mistake!
Smithiana is a highly toxic amanita that produces very serious toxins that attack the kidneys; despite its reputation as a “deadly”
mushroom tho, I could find NO evidence of its ever having caused a death.
