Death Cap mushrooms, Amanita phalloides, have been found in the  Arboretum and are present on the Waite Campus. They are very toxic and ingestion of even a small amount will cause serious illness and may be fatal.

You are advised not to pick or eat any wild mushrooms as poisonous mushrooms may resemble edible ones.

Information about Deathcap mushrooms can be found on the Australian National Botanical Gardens website
