Question for the forum
    #2809445 - 06/19/04 08:40 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

A friend of mine found some baby cubes that look exactly like these:

He wants to eat them and I told him I wasn't sure if he should. What's the verdict?

Thanks

"Look exactly like" isn't good enough when it comes to mushrooms. I found some Psathyerllas that look exactly like that picture. Doesn't make them cubensis.

Fact of the matter is you can never make an ID based on looks alone. How do we know your buddy didn't find some Amanita phalloides(Death cap) pins that "look exactly like" cubensis? You don't untill you take further identification mesaures. Mistaking a deadly mushroom for an active would be a very shitty mistake to make.

need pics of the ones you're talking about, prefer an id.

Don't pick pins anyway.

That's exactly what I told him...It's not a chance I think he should take. Thanks again.

It is good of you to inquire about potential health hazards to your friend, which is what he should be doing himself. If they picked them in the wild and they look like that, almost certainly they are not cubensis and they could be deadly. Make sure your friend does not consume them!!!
