Tricholoma pardinum in some years causes a significant percentage of the poisonings reported in Europe. Between 15 minutes and two hours after a meal of this mushroom, victims experience violent illness marked by vomiting and diarrhea sometimes accompanied by malaise and dizziness. Full recovery takes up to a week. The cause is unknown. Tricholoma venenatum, a very similar species is also reported to cause significant gastric distress.
