    I've generally heard that the less colourful it is the less likely it is to be poisonous. don't think this is entirely true though. I found an interesting mushroom the other day that had a cap which looked like a lychee. this was up in burrowra

    The problem with muhrooms/fungi is that there aren't any rules-of-thum for safe vs not safe.

    The best advice is not to eat any (which you are not certain about).
