and take care of strangers in a strange land

i do not know if that was ignorance +need or a lookalike that is harmless at "home" and DC's look enough like it to fool any but the most expert(maybe with a microscope)

there is at least one china/europe lookalike confusion that has killed folk on a few occasions

looks like as found in some field guides is a useful id tool to avoid some common mistakes

on a happier theme tis cep season

Death caps and parasol mushrooms in Britain are sufficiently different for me as a not too expert to distinguish. One guide to death caps is that they have the remains of a sheath at the bottom of the stem and round the edge of the cap. Parasols have none at the bottom and a loose ruff on the stem. Colours tend to be different too.
