Deadly poisonous. Comment This mushroom contains poisons similar to those of the Destroying Angel, Amanita virosa. Note it has been pointed out to me that the illustrations look very different. The more flat capped specimens were collected in America, but they fit well with the pictures in the Fungi of Switzerland volume 4. The other specimens were checked by Dr Derek Reid at Kew and they fit the description of 'Conecap' very much better. I think it all goes to show that the age of the specimens is very important as they can change quite radically.

Comment In the past, this fungus has been split into two varieties. Those with the concentric pseudogills were known as Coltricia montagnei var. greenii Fr., which was also known as Cyclomyces greenii Berk., and the poroid variety, known as Coltricia montagnei Fr. var. montagnei.
