Fungi, Mushrooms, Moulds, Slimes .


Wild mushrooms are abundant in many areas of New Zealand, especially after a rainy spell.
Some are dangerous to eat; a few can even kill you.
It is never safe to eat a wild mushroom unless a mushroom identification expert says so.
This website does not list what species are edible and what is not.
