All the species of the genus Panaeolus are hold for poisonous (containing
hallucinogenic substances), because they are very close and similar to the
genus Psilocybe, as well as the whole Strophariaceae family.

Objet : Panaeolus semiovatus, poisonous?

Dear all

Panaeolus semiovatus (Sow. ex Fr.) Lund also known as Annelaria
semiovata (S. x F.) Pears. & Dennis, A. separata (L. x F.) Karst. or
A. fimiputris (Bull. x F.) Karst. has been reported as poisonous in
some mushroom books, but does not figure in the most well known books
on poisonous fungi (e.g. Bresinsky & Besl 1990, and Benjamin 1995).

Could anyone please let me have a reference about it's poisonousness?
