Step 1

Death cap

Pale toadstool is a particularly dangerous and most toxic fungus in the entire mushroom kingdom. It grows from late summer to late September. This poisonous mushroom has a capped fruiting body. At the beginning of its development, the cap of the toadstool has a greenish-olive tint, but as the fungus develops, the color of its cap becomes lighter. The plates of the pale toadstool are white and are located on the mushroom rather freely. The leg of this poisonous mushroom is 1-2 cm thick and is painted white or the color of the cap itself. In addition, the pale toadstool has a white cupped volva that is submerged in the soil in most cases.

Step 2

Fly agaric

This is another of the most famous poisonous mushrooms. Fruiting in fly agarics lasts from early summer to late autumn. This poisonous mushroom has a large fruiting body, and its cap is easily separated from the stem. The thick and fleshy (sometimes with tubercles) cap of the fly agaric can be painted in different colors: it can be red, green, and white. It should be noted that the remnants of a white blanket in which this mushroom was in the early stages of its development give a recognizable appearance to the cap of the fly agaric. The white leg of the fly agaric has a straight cylindrical shape, and the plates are located freely and are painted in a yellowish-white tint. Amanita's flesh is usually white in color.

Step 3

False Foam

The life cycle of a false frog lasts from June to October. This poisonous mushroom grows on decaying wood, forming quite large groups. The false frog has a small, convex cap, mainly with yellowish, orange or red tints at the edges and with a darker color in its center. The thin and fibrous stem of this fungus is even on the outside, and hollow on the inside (completely empty). You should also know that the flesh of the false froth is light yellow in color.

Step 4


This is another poisonous mushroom that poses the greatest danger to humans. The fertile period for silverfish falls on the period from July to October. Young silverfish has a small convex (sometimes flat-convex) white cap with a red tubercle. It is also worth noting that the top of the cap of this poisonous mushroom is covered with reddish brown scales. Hence the name of the mushroom. The long thin leg of the silverfish has a cylindrical shape, inside it is hollow. The thin and white flesh of this mushroom can turn red when broken or touched. The mushroom plates are free and white.

Step 5

Satanic mushroom

Ripening of this poisonous mushroom begins in June and ends in September. Its cap is large - up to 30 cm in diameter. By the end of summer, it becomes like a pillow. The skin of the satanic mushroom cap is mostly velvety and dry to the touch, but sometimes it can be smooth. The color of the cap of this mushroom is different: from white with a yellowish-green tint to gray-olive. The leg of the satanic mushroom has a spherical shape and a reddish-yellow tint.
