After a little research, I can find no black gilled, black spored, dung inhabiting species which are known to be deadly poisonous. Several species are listed as inedible, and the majority seem to be unknown.

If the intent of your question is to suggest (even only to yourself) that it would be OK to eat any mushroom with the description above, it's probably a bad idea. Unknown means exactly that. If you want to be a guinea pig, read on.


If you want truly to contribute to scientific knowledge, here is a way to do it.

First, obtain a collection of a species to try - use good collecting techniques to ensure that you have only one species and your specimens will be usable as vouchers later. If you don't know how to make such a collection, talk to the mycologist in the second step and ask them to teach you how (it's not difficult).

Second, get a professional mycologist to identify your mushrooms and save aside a good voucher collection. You should be able to find a mycologist at a nearby university. They should also be able to advise you whether eating that particular species is more risky than others or whether we already know if it's edible or not.

Third, cook and eat a measured amount of the unknown species. Keep a log of what happens. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have a medical person available in case of problems.

Finally, submit your log information to the mycologist from the second step, or publish it yourself. Who knows - you could be the next Charles McIlvaine.

In this way, you would contribute to the body of accurate knowledge. Most people skip all but the third step. The problem is that we can't verify exactly what was eaten, and often there is no written record. There are thousands of species of mushrooms which we don't know the edibility of. The only truly accurate way to find out is for somebody to eat it.

Of course you'll probably get pretty sick a few times, but that's what we're talking about, isn't it?

Happy mushrooming!
