A common imported species that appears on mass every year in Selby is Tricholoma aff. terreum.

In the past this mushroom was considered edible – and in France and the Catal region is has a long heritage of being consumed – HOWEVER:

Recent research from China suggested that this species may contain nephrotoxic constituents particular when eaten in large amounts. Therefore we pick these to smell their lovely scent but we do not sell or recommend consumption of this mushroom.
