[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hypholoma sublateritium, sometimes called Brick Cap, is rarer and less well-known than its relatives, the inedible Sulfur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare) and the edible Hypholoma capnoides. Its fruiting bodies are generally larger than either of these.

In Europe this mushroom is often considered inedible or even poisonous, but in the USA and Japan it is apparently a popular edible fungus. One further reason to avoid it is the possibility of confusion with Galerina marginata or H. fasciculare.

Salut Liviu,

foarte interesanta aglomeratia asta de ciuperci. De asemeni comentariul pe care l-ai facut. Poza este clara, detliata si bine incadrata.


Hi Liviu,
This is without doubt Hypholoma fascficulare (the cap color only corresponds to this specie), not H. sublateritium as You stated - even You made the confusion You're talking about. Good photo, otherwise.
Regards, László
