Extract from Wikipedia article: Chlorophyllum molybdites, which has the common names of false parasol, green-spored Lepiota and vomiter, is a widespread mushroom. Poisonous and producing severe gastrointestinal symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea, it is commonly confused with the shaggy parasol or shaggy mane, and is the most commonly consumed poisonous mushroom in North America. Its large size and similarity to the edible parasol mushroom, as well as its habit of growing in areas near human habitation, are reasons cited for this. The nature of the poisoning is predominantly gastrointestinal.

Cantonese: 鉛綠褶菇, Chinese: 綠褶菇, Polish: Sinoblaszek trujący, Russian: Хлорофиллум свинцовошлаковый, Thai: เห็ดหัวกรวดครีบเขียว.
