Dangers of mixing species in bag
    #14428264 - 05/10/11 06:31 AM (10 years, 4 days ago)

Hi Guys,

I'm hoping to get some opinions.

I didn't bring enough bags with me on a hunt a few days ago. I picked a number of species: p. sub as well as 3 others that I was interested in identifying. I (stupidly) put about half a dozen p. sub specimens I picked in a bag with about 4 specimens of another unidentified species (see species 3 from this post.

Aside from the fact that mixing species for transport is a poor practise: I'm wondering if there's any real danger in mixing mushrooms that someone might eat at some point with other unidentified mushrooms. Hypothetically, say the unidentified mushrooms were deadly: is it likely that superficial contact between the edibles and the deadlies inside the bag would render the edibles deadly or dangerous?

My feeling is there's probably not much risk of harm coming to anyone from any minute amount of toxin being introduced that way, but I'm very interested to get as many opinions on this as possible. I've read about people tasting small amounts of deadlies like amanita phaloidies(sp?), then spitting out the material they put in their mouths, and no ill effect. Are there actually mushrooms that are so toxic that a such a small amount of exposure could make someone sick or dead?

No, that's not something you should worry about. But simply due to the risk of confusion, it's best to transport and store unidentified species in separate containers.

Unless they are deadly zombie mushrooms. Then they could turn the other mushrooms into werewolf vampire zombie mushrooms as well.

No problem, just make sure you have them separated before drying (or eating)

Some sneaky poison mushrooms try to impersonate good mushrooms... Don't buy the fake mustaches they might be using

Used to be a rumor that amanitas' spores would be bad on neighbors in a basket but it's not true

I also will echo others thought, eatables are best separated in my opinion when possible

I tried Amainita phalloides a few weeks ago, but I rinsed my mouth out well. Apparently there's one type, maybe a Russela (perhaps someone can jog my memory) that has an insane hot pepper spice to it that can be like eating chillies.

Many species of russula have a hot, peppery taste.

The hotness and the burn is not chillilike at all it's literally like chewing on black pepper and those are the ones you don't want to eat.

Happy hunting

Hey ya Conscious - yea, always good meeting a fellow shroomer out in the field, Glad you've joined up :smile:. Well done on the finds man. See you again soon no doubt...

And thanks to you guys who commented on my original query above: the consensus seems to be what I was originally thinking - VERY bad practise, but not dangerous if no unidentified material is eaten.

Cheers.
