Slide 57.
Stropharia coronilla is sometimes mistaken for Agaricus campestris, the Meadow Mushroom. Pickers who do not watch for the pink free gills characteristic of a young Agaricus campestris can easily mistakenly pick this otherwise somewhat similar mushroom. One to two hours after a meal of Stropharia coronilla, the victim may suffer malaise, headache, vomiting, generalized aching, confusion, loss of coordination, dizziness and hallucinations. The toxic agent is unknown. I have checked it for known hallucinogens and found none.
