Anellaria semiovata, also known as “Hydraulic Mushroom”, is named after its fruiting bodies are toxic and can cause hallucinations after being poisoned by humans. Distributed in my country’s Taiwan, Shaanxi, Xinjiang and other places, especially the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
Morphological characteristics: Fruit bodies are generally medium. The diameter of the fungus cover is generally 4cm, sometimes up to 8cm, nearly conical, bell-shaped to hemispherical, and some of the top is slightly brownish, smooth and sticky, and sometimes cracked. Bacterial flesh is white. The gills are gray and white in the early stage, and appear as gray and black mottling in the later stage, growing straight, slightly dense, and varying in length. The stalk is cylindrical, 10-25cm long, 0.4-1.2cm thick, white to dirty white, with vertical stripes on the top, gradually thickening below the fungus ring, and soft and hollow inside. The middle and upper part of the membranous stalk.

Distributed in Taiwan, Gansu, Shaanxi, Xinjiang, Qinghai, Tibet, Sichuan, Hebei and other regions, it is more common in high mountain pastures. This type of grass is more common in the Songpan area of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, but not found in the grasslands of Inner Mongolia. This bacteria is poisonous and can cause hallucinations after poisoning.
