yellow stainer (Agaricus xanthodermus), so called bc it stains yellow with contact/bruising/cutting/beating with a hickory rod and calling it names as you chase it around the village (not recommended - spores). They are exceptionally good at looking similar to more well-mannered mushrooms, which they are not! sneaky.
the pink gills turn brown with age
nibbled on by creatures not human
grows in association with anything. it has no moral standards.
spore print: dark brownish purple which may sound attractive but it isnt; the colour of the dried-mud remnant of Nature's watercolour set from Toyland
smells like phenol. (again, not attractive. yet people eat them, every year)
kills people.
they hate us. dont eat them.

Mushrooms communicate with each other using up to 50 ‘words’, scientist claims | Fungi | The Guardian

Professor theorises electrical impulses sent by mycological organisms could be similar to human language

"They keep treating us like low-paid workers!" said one of the mushrooms.
(Although there is mushroom for doubt about this.)
