Re: Most poisonous mushrooms
You are right of course, thank you. I am discussing here only mushrooms as " fruiting body" which are visible. If there is any other term I will use it instead of "mushroom" or "fungus". The problem is btw. very similar in common use in unscientific Slovak/Czech language -"huba" for "fruiting body" as well as for "fungus".

Re: Most poisonous mushrooms
From your link

Wild animals eat fungi, yet mushroom poisonings in nature are unknown. The opossumDidelphis virginiana readily consumed the toxic mushroomAmanita muscaria, became ill, and then developed an aversion to the fungus. Both the illness and the aversion were due, in part at least, to the toxin muscimol.

So mushroom poisonings in nature are not unknown. Says so right in the next sentence.

Terminally and massively off-topic - Closing now
Congratulations to all the mushroom people. You've just buried a presumably interesting topic somewhere it didn't belong.

No time warning - Closing now. Learn from this experience.
