    Baneberry is the only deadly berry but there is more than one that doesn't taste very good or make you sick if you eat too many.

    There are MANY deadly and poisonous mushrooms

I think Monkshead and Water Hemlock are two very lethal. I want to know, what plant is the most deadly and what is the second most deadly. This is research for a novel.

    I would go with water hemlock, looks similar to wild celery (edible) and has a neuro toxin that shuts down the central nervouse system. No antitode.
