    Mmm.... quite possibly so.

    How detectable is belladonna? I'm kind of under the assumption eating poison berries from earth isn't something people look for in space.

    I should think the fact that they've been poisoned would be fairly obvious (Belladonna causes vomiting, hallucinations, and convulsions (depending on dose)). Whether they specifically identify it at autopsy is a different question.

    By why suspect poisoning and not a virus/bacteria/nanovirus or thing in the head?

    Also, the point isn't no one suspects anything, they just can't figure out what it is.

    Then belladonna would work just fine. I think the combination of symptoms, and the speed with which they appear, is what makes poison the obvious answer. They'd probably be able to identify the poisonous substances (atropine, hyocyamine and scopolamine), although the question of where it had come from might remain

    And given that the first victims are civilians, the doctors are left thinking it was probably some moonshine or something native to their planet.
