Inky Cap (Coprinopsis atramentaria), Walnut Creek, California

Though edible these mushrooms contain coprine which blocks acetaldehyde dehydrogenase which is involved in the metabolism of ethanol. Without functioning acetaldehyde dehydrogenase the body builds up the "hangover molecule" acetaldehyde in the blood leading the person to feel horrible. It won't kill you, but like a bad hangover you might wish you were dead. Coprine takes about 3-5 days to pass out of the body, so if you eat them, don't drink any booze for at least that amount of time.
