Ringed Conocybe

Also known as the "Ringed Conocybe" and Pholiotina filaris. This species or group of species has only recently been shown to contain the same lethal toxins as the deadly Destroying Angel (Amanita virosa)-additional evidence that LBMs (little brown mushrooms) are not safe to experiment with.
