Abstract : In this publication the various European names of the generic fungus or certain species that are apprehended as poisonous are presented and studied. The popular beliefs and traditions of the inhabitants using these linguistic forms are described. First, we present the various designationsfor which the fungus is considered the shelter, the seat or the cap of the toad (see part I). Next, the designations for which the fungus is apprehended as toxic, poisonous food (see Part II) or as a secretion, excrement (see Part III) will be presented. For these different designations, we describe the links between the reptile, batrachian, canidae and fungus zoonyms (see Parts I, II and III). Finally, we consider the links between these different zoonyms and witchcraft or the devil (see Part IV).
