Lepiota brunneoincarnata, also known as the deadly dapperling, is a gilled mushroom of the genus Lepiota in the order Agaricales. It is known to contain deadly amounts of alpha-Amanitin and was responsible for a fatal poisoning in Spain,[1] and for the deaths of four young members of the same family in Tunisia.[2] It is widely distributed in Europe and temperate regions of Asia.[3]

It has white gills and spores. The cap is 1.5–4 cm (0.6–1.6 in) across.[4]

The species was described by Swiss botanists Robert Hippolyte Chodat & Charles-Édouard Martin in 1889.[5]
