The Fungi World (301) : 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
