Hydnum repandum, commonly known as the sweet tooth, is a basidiomycete fungus of the family Hydnaceae. The fungus produces fruit bodies (mushrooms) that are characterized by their spore-bearing structures—in the form of spines rather than gills—which hang down from the underside of the cap. The cap is dry, colored yellow to light orange to brown, and often develops an irregular shape, especially when it has grown closely crowded with adjacent fruit bodies. Spotted near Makrirrachi village, Pelion mountain, Greece.
