I Could Be A Death Cap! - Little Brown Mushrooms LBM - NZ by 


A closer look at the LBM, little brown mushrooms glistening with the early morning dew. Please view Large, thank you.
Most little brown mushrooms on the ground look similar. That’s why they’re referred to as “LBMs”, which stands for “little brown mushrooms.”
LBM isn’t a scientific term for genus or species. Rather, it’s a category used to lump together all small to medium brownish mushrooms.
Brownish is a relative term as some drab yellow, white, or gray mushrooms are considered LBMs. There are hundreds of species out there fitting this description, and many of them are extremely difficult to identify outside of a lab.
Little brown mushrooms are found everywhere, in all seasons, and in all habitats. If you look closely outdoors, you’ll probably see more LBMs than you ever noticed before!
Many LBMs are poisonous mushrooms and will cause nausea or gastric distress. However, some contain the same deadly amatoxins as certain amanitas such as the death cap.
The most notable and deadly of these are species in the Galerina genus. They may not appear dangerous, but some of these little specimens can kill! Thus it’s worth examining the deadly galerina mushrooms in more detail.
One way to avoid LBM poisoning: never eat them!

City Of Angels! – LBM – Little Brown Mushrooms

Magical Hallucinations

Make A Wish It Can Come True!

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
