It's not just convallaria - there have been mixups with Arum maculatum 
(which is almost always unspotted around here) and even Colchicum 
autumnale, and more than one death related to that - for us bulbophiles, 
none of these mixups could happen, but some people run around harvesting 
anything with somewhat wide monocot leaves...
