Well now you have it on good authority that sulphur shelf is one that is 
safe -- but none of them are good RAW...
What I was taught in the 80's was that while all of the shelf mushrooms 
that exist are not by any means edible, none of them
would give you more than a belly ache.. However I still would not 
collect them these days, I confess.

The scariest thing was that even though you might know very well a 
specific kind , where you find it is important to whether or not it 
would be safe to consume.. example given was those growing next to a 
well trafficked automobile road.. the 'shrooms absorb the fumes coming 
from the vehicles. ugh.
