    Hi Pixi! No, is the answer, and in fact have only ever encountered a few of these very weird fungi but I have heard they grow commonly in some places. I seem to recall many years ago that we ate some Parasols that were at the bottom of my garden and Sharren said she would get ready to phone the ambulance!
    I am very glad to hear that you have been learning about fungi too!

    From what I've heard, Puffballs are the safest to eat, but only at an inmature age. I would recommend not eating wild or even domestically grown mushrooms, however, unless your an expert or you are with an expert because they can be very poisonous (Have you ever read Into the Wild?).
