Death cap mushrooms have been spotted in the ACT for the first time this year, prompting health authorities to remind Canberrans not to pick or eat wild mushrooms.
 
The mushrooms, which are among the world's deadliest, are known to grow in Canberra's older suburbs, near established oak trees and after periods of wet weather.
 
Acting ACT chief health officer Kerryn Coleman said the mushrooms could be lethal if they are eaten.
 
"It is crucial for people to understand that all parts of the mushroom are poisonous and cooking them does not make them safe to eat," she said.
