The poison in this mushroom and in several other species of Inocybe (as well as in Clitocybe rivulosa etc.) is muscarine. (The substance has been named after Amanita muscaria which, however only contains small amounts of muscarine.) Although muscarine has a limited absorption from the gut, these mushrooms can cause systemic poisoning characterized by flow of saliva (hypersalivation), diminishment of heart rate (bradycardia), sweating, reduction of blood pressure, abdominal cramps, vomiting, diarrhoea and several other symptoms (most of them mimicking parasympathetic autonomic nerve overactivity). Patients with strong and dangerous symptoms are treated with atropine, a plant alkaloid that blocks the same "receptors" that are stimulated by muscarine.
