Mushrooms occurring in Europe - Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca




Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca - Cap diameter 20 to 70 mm, initially convex, later flat, depressed and funnel-shaped in the middle; rolled up when young, then folded and bent; surface smooth or slightly fiber, dry, matte; yellow-orange to red-orange.

Lamellae narrow, thin, low, sometimes multiple-branched, converging on the stipe; intensely orange, paler with age.

Stem 30 to 50 mm high, 3 to 10 mm thick; thin, slender, full when young, later empty; central or slightly eccentric, widening upwards; surface slightly fibrous, almost smooth, slightly paler than the cap, at the bottom darker, brownish.

Thin, fibrous, unchanging, yellowish flesh; unpleasant taste, bitter - sour, faint odor.

Occurrence: On the ground, in coniferous and mixed forests, in humid places; grows individually or in groups; uncommon but common in places. From September to November.

Value: Inedible mushroom, even slightly poisonous, may cause gastrotoxic poisoning. It is very easy to confuse it with the Jadalmym Cantharellus cibarius var. cibarius.
