Abstract: Primary Impact: The death cap mushroom is deadly poisonous if eaten. It can be mistaken for edible puffballs when young or the Asian straw mushroom when older. In Canada, the death cap mushroom was first recorded in 1997. This mushroom was collected in a grove of large European sweet chestnut trees at Lake Errock near Mission, B.C. The second Canadian record was made in 1998 under a large European beech tree in the landscaped grounds of a Victoria, B.C. residence. In 2008, the first death cap mushrooms found in Vancouver were collected from under a European hornbeam boulevard tree, apparently planted in the 1960s. Records of deathcap mushrooms are now numerous in the southwestern corner of British Columbia?in the Fraser Valley, in Vancouver and its neighbouring municipalities in the Fraser Delta, in and around Victoria on southern Vancouver Island, and on Galiano Island (see Figure 1). Almost all locations in British Columbia were recorded under non-native broadleaf tree species (Table 1); however, the death cap is now known to fruit in association with native Garry oak trees.
