By using this site, you agree that if you collect, forage, or eat mushrooms and other edibles you find, you are doing so at your own risk.
Be safe and sensible. I make every effort to make sure the information I provide on my site and link to is correct, but I strongly advise against using information from any one site or source to attempt to identify and use wild foods. Research advances, controversies arise, mycologists debate, and some information may become out of date before I can get back to change it. (But if you do find such an error, PLEASE email me at [email protected] and I will make sure to address it as quickly as I can.)
Always confirm information with multiple *reliable* sources. Such sources might include a local mycology club, well-established field guides, or an experienced forager in your local area. Certain resources online can also be a good way to make sure you’re keeping up with the latest information about identification, toxicity, and nutrition.
The Runcible Raven, LLC, DBA The FunGal Forager accepts no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions that may be contained on the site, nor for any errors the reader might make in identifying mushrooms or other wild foods, for reactions to eating poisonous foods, or for other reactions (like allergies) to eating such foods. Again, be safe. I love the people in the foraging community, and if you poison your good self, I’ll be sad!
