It is a common woodland mushroom, often in evidence when hardly any other mushrooms are to be found. This small gill fungus grows prolifically in large clumps on stumps, dead roots or rotting trunks of broadleaved trees. The Sulphur Tuft is bitter and poisonous; consuming it can cause vomiting, diarrhea and convulsions.
This is an attractive species that fruits in tight clusters on conifer wood or debris.
