I don't have pictures but I can tell you some of the most deadly species:

Amanita virosa
Amanita phalloides
Conocybe filaris
Galerina autumnalis

OK, you're just kidding, but you should also be aware that the survival rate (with medical treatment) for even the deadliest mushrooms is about 90%. It also takes about 2 weeks for them to die.

Plants are far deadlier. There are lovely things like Monkshood and Hemlock that are easy to find and very deadly in a few hours, with a much higher fatality rate.

Of course, if you *really* want to kill somebody, it's tough to beat a Saturday Night Special. Cheap, easy to get, easy to dispose of, and effective.

If you want to find out about deadly mushrooms, there are more web sites than you can shake a stick at which will tell you everything you caould want to know. Try a Google search for "deadly mushroom". I just tried it and got about 21,500 matches.

Happy mushrooming!

I don't use any web sites for identification, although there are some springing up to try to make that possible. I use a number of books which you will see mentioned in many threads out here.

Here are links to a few of the best mushroom sites:
Mykoweb
Fungi of Poland
Tom Volk's Page
Mushroomexpert.com <--has some nice keys

There are a ton of other good sites also.

Good luck, and happy mushrooming!
