Yes. Poisoning (toxicosis) is usually attributable to ingestion of mushrooms that produce the following toxins: amanitins, monomethyl-hydrazine, muscarine, ibotenic acid, and psilocybin.


Some people may experience hay fever, asthma, or another hypersensitivity.


Rarely identified except when sampling area of dry rot, wood rot or brown rot. Some mushrooms are nonwood rotting and should be submitted to a laboratory for accurate identification.

One species (A. pullulans) produce pullulan which is a biodegradable polysaccharide processed into fibers and used for packaging food and drug products.

Is it harmful to humans?

Found everywhere. Distributed by the wind and released during periods of high humidity or rain.

Dry rot, wood rot, and brown rot are all the result of basidiospores producing fungi.  However, in the vast majority of cases, basidiospores detected in air samples are not from indoor growth.  They are typically brought in through windows and doors.  Because of this, mold remediation is typically not required.
