Hebeloma sinapizans is another species that reportedly causes severe gastrointestinal distress, yet there are no confirmed reports in the NAMA database. One Hebeloma species has been found to contain unusual sesquiterpines and another contains toxic triterpine glycosides. No Hebeloma species are recommended for the table. Light to medium brown gills and light to medium brown spores and a normally viscid cap distinguish the Hebelomas. Bead-like water droplets form along the gill edges and later become tiny, evenly spaced brown spots. Hebeloma species may or may not have a veil. Some are meaty and others are small. Many have an odor and taste of radish.
