Death-Cap is a deadly poisonous mushroom, widely distributed across Europe.[1]

It is used in the making of the Death-Cap Draught.[2] Given their name, Death caps are likely capable of causing death.

Behind the scenes

  • The deathcap mushroom (Amanita phalloides) is believed to be the cause of most mushroom-related poisonings worldwide, as it resembles edible mushrooms.[3]
  • Much more well-known to folklore and magical superstition is the Fly Agaric Mushroom (Amanita muscaria), a cousin of the deathcap, recognisable worldwide for its bright red cap with white spots.
