some of them will kill you? :D
 
Nope. But I have about two hours max to clean and fry them and get them on the table.
They are ink caps and will turn dark very, very fast.
Coprinus comatus, the shaggy ink cap, lawyer's wig, or shaggy mane, is a common fungus often seen growing on lawns, along gravel roads and waste areas. The young fruit bodies first appear as white cylinders emerging from the ground, then the bell-shaped caps open out. The caps are white, and covered with scales—this is the origin of the common names of the fungus. The gills beneath the cap are white, then pink, then turn black and secrete a black liquid filled with spores (hence the "ink cap" name). This mushroom is unusual because it will turn black and dissolve itself in a matter of hours after...

@Ash They were. I also now have a good pound of sautéed mushrooms cooling down for the freezer and another batch that will be cleaned and prepped tomorrow.
