Deathcap mushrooms, Amanita phalloides, have been found in the Waite Arboretum. They are very toxic and the 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 from the Waite Campus as poisonous mushrooms may resemble edible ones.

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