Abstract
Togaria aurea, usually considered to be relatively rare in North America, often fruits abundantly in southcentral Alaska. Its habitat is along road edges under groves of alder. All authors are in agreement that T. aurea is edible, and many list it as good. However, our experience with it gives us cause to question the reputation as to edibility of the species. Three persons have suffered gastrointestinal upsets after ingestion on two different occasions, though other people eating it at the same times suffered no ill effects. It would be highly desirable to further document the edibility of T. aurea as it occurs in Alaska.
