Sulphur Tuft

Hypholoma fasciculare


This saprophytic mushroom grows in tight clusters on decaying wood. The cap is smooth and bicolored: yellowish close to edges, and darker orange-brown in the center. The gills are crowded and initially yellow. With the time and maturity, they would darken to a green-blackish colour. The spore print (which I did not do) is brown. No particular smell.


Grows in clusters on dead and decaying wood on forest floor. Here, observed protruding between the planks on pathways in protected marshes in Geneva lake valley.


Toxic. Could be confounded (at least in my eyes) with Galerina marginata (also toxic) and Kuehneromyces mutabilis (edible and appreciated)
