Caption: Deathcap mushroom (Amanita phalloides) on woodland floor. This deadly poisonous mushroom has a cap up to 12 centimetres across and grows in deciduous woodlands, typically with oaks. It is the most deadly known fungus, causing severe liver and kidney damage. It has no known antidote and mortality rates, dependant on early recognition, are 50 to 90%. Death is preceded by severe vomiting and diarrhoea lasting 24 hours or more followed by an apparent, but short-lived, recovery.
