How's your friend?
If he's suffering no ill effects after a week, doubt there much that 
should or even could be done

Hello my mycological friends ,

A friend believe he has consumed two small Cortinarius bellus mushroom
caps approximately one week ago .

I have searched and found reference to other specific varieties of
Cortinarius that are highly toxic , but can find no specific mention
of the bellus variety with regard to toxicity .

Can anyone forward me to information regarding toxicity information
regarding Cortinarius Bellus?

Or advise as to what the person should do , ie. should they report to
the poison centre of the hospital for testing ?

We can find little specific information pertaining to this "bellus"
variety and some specific guidance on this matter would be most
helpful .


Regards

Dear Mr. Nagel,

I know that the Multnomah County Library downtown Portland location has a
special collections room which I frequent to read the rare and expensive
works of the late ethnomycologist Robert Gordon Wasson.  Considering the
library's extensive and invaluable collections of books and other works on
Oregon's natural and human history in addition to having all of Wasson's
works (including the two volume Mushrooms, Russia and History costing 
around
$4000 on average), I believe that this could be an appropriate home for 
your
rare two volume set.  This would also allow it to be viewable to the
public.  I would contact the special collections room specifically in this
matter.  Please post to the forum again once you've decided on a home for
them.  Good luck.

Sincerely,

-Daniel Newman
