"What magnificent mushrooms! - Delightfully ancient
Roman emperor Claudius told the spouse Agrippina treating with his house
dinner.-– Why they didn't give to my table earlier? From now on let give me
only such mushrooms!".
On September 12, 2013, in Estonia is introduced into post
circulation a second issue devoted to the poisonous mushrooms growing in the
dense forests of the Finn. A postage value with the image of a deadly mushroom
under the name "Pale Toadstool" (Amanita phalloides). The issue is
printed in sheet of 25 values of poisonous lilac coulor.
Amanita phalloides, commonly known as the death cap, is a
deathly mushroom with a long period of latency as its poisons cause major
damage to the liver and the kidneys. The death cap is so poisonous that it
should not put even into the same basket with mushrooms intended for the
kitchen, which can then become equally poisonous. In Estonia the death cap
grows in broadleaved forests in August and September.
