Yes, the North American Mycological Association (NAMA) does publish the
records of mushroom poisoning regularly in "McIlvainea". The 1992 issue
that I have here includes an article entitled: "Mushroom Poisoning Case
Registry, North American Mycological Association, Report 1991" by John H.
Trestrial III. There is also an extensive bibliography titled: "Poisonous
Mushrooms and Toxins: Selected References, 1991" prepared for the NAMA
Toxicology Committee by Dr.Kenneth W. Cochran.
The Mushroom Poisoning Case Registry articles are produced annually in
"McIlvainea". The address on this 1992 issue is: NAMA, 3556 Oakwood, Ann
Arbor, Michigan 48104-5213, U.S.A.
