The Fungi World (276) : Shaggy Scalycap

It’s fungi time again. Hurray ! :-))

In autumn, the forest is a real fascinating paradise for fungi with dozens of species that emerge from the soil.
Let’s have a look at what I found.

Today I start with the Shaggy Scalycap.

Shaggy Scalycap is a fungus that grows usually at the base of old trees, but always in clusters.

Smells (and tastes) like a radish but, although not deadly, it is considered mildly toxic.

Dutch name : Schubbige bundelzwam
German name : Sparriger Schüppling
Latin name : Pholiota squarrosa
