I found this family of mushrooms while walking in the Birch Forest of the Lame, in the Parco Naturale dell’Aveto, Liguria, Italy. I was attracted by the striking red color and the geometrical arrangement of these highly poisonous mushrooms (ideal as a condiment when you invite your mother-in-law), growing on a thick carpet of leaves.

It was not possible to miss this mushroom while walking in the Foresta delle Lame in the Natural Park of Aveto, Liguria, Italy. Its rich red colour and round form are as attractive at least as much as the lethality of the mushroom!
