This mushroom's habitat is by woods or near trees. I saw a couple of mushroom like that one so they are like in the woods in dry dead leaves.


The day that we went outside is November 14.The mushroom that we searched for outside we didn’t know the name yet. We went outside twice to look for mushroom. My group and I looked for mushroom near by school surrounded by trees. We saw a couple mushrooms and were cutting the mushroom so we can organize it .We brought the mushroom in school. When we were there the temperature of the day was like 43 degrees F, kind of a cold day but after we cut the mushroom the ground was dry. All the leaves of the trees fell down so its hard to see a mushroom.We still saw a mushroom. We also had a mushroom with a pink color and we had tan mushroom and brown mushroom. We don’t know if one of our mushroom is poison or not. While we searched I think I found one of our mushroom and its called Russulla Mushroom.
