Poisonous and Deadly Fungi of Arizona

Go outside; enjoy a walk through your neighborhood, a hike up a mountain, a visit to a local park, you name it. If you find a mushroom, photograph it from various angles (don't worry; touching a deadly species is unlikely to harm you, but it's safe to wash your hands regardless), upload it so that, if you're unsure, the Project Noah community can help with identification, and if it's poisonous or deadly to humans, add it to this mission and be proud that you're helping document something that could of caused someone real trouble had he or she not known about it! Good luck! :) Sign in to join mission

The kingdom of fungi is vast -- millions of species are predicted to exist and only a small percentage is known. With this in mind, there are many misunderstandings of this vast and diverse group, some along the extremes of claiming all things fungus-like to be deadly and harmful. This mission was created to expose that tiny group of "misfit" mushrooms and elevate a sense of understanding, awareness, and, most importantly, acceptance that there are indeed some harmful species, only a handful exist and should not cause fear for them all.
