Clitocybe dilitata, also known as Clitocybe cerrusata var. diformis, is another poisonous mushroom containing significant amounts of muscarine. The Clitocybe species have a white (sometimes pinkish) spore print and generally have gills that are bluntly attached to the stem or are decurrent and run down the stem at the point of attachment. There are a few choice edible members of this genus but many can cause serious poisoning. Correct identifications can be tricky.
