Hypholoma fasciculare

Common Name: Sulphur tuft
Synonym: Naematoloma fasciculare
It shape and colours vary depending on the wood where it grows or in the lattitude or climate.
Cap 2-7 cm broad, convex, expanding to nearly plane in age, sometimes with a broad low umbo; margin incurved when young, wavy if clustered, often slightly appendiculate with veil fragments; surface smooth, moist, disc yellow-orange to tawny-orange, shading to a lighter margin, overlapped caps often patchy purple-brown from shed spores; flesh pale yellow, thin; odor not distinctive; taste bitter.
Gills adnate, crowded, narrow, yellow becoming sulphur-green, in age dingy, olive-brown from maturing spores.
Stipe 2-9 cm tall, 0.4-1.5 cm thick, equal or tapering downward, hollow, often twisted, pale yellow with brown fibrils, bruising brown on handling; partial veil evanescent, usually leaving sparse fragments on the cap margin but sometimes forming a superior fibrillose annular zone.
Spores 6.5-8 x 3.5-4.5 m, elliptical, smooth, with an apical pore; spore print purple-brown.Gregarious to clustered on hardwood/conifer logs or stumps, sometimes in grass from buried wood.
Poisonous. Opinion is divided on the toxicity of this species, anyway it is extremely bitter. It is known that some ones have amanita type poison !

Hope you like!

Hermoso hallazgo con una bonita composicion a partir de un POV estupendo y una profundidad adecuada.
Los colores son suaves, sin la incidencia solar y el encuadre bien ajustado.
Muy buena nota tambien.

Great capture Felipe. Its like a mini forest within the forest. Good use of DOF and the perfect perspective I think to. well done.

Beautiful capture, Felipe. Sharpness and exposure perfect. And your note is very informative.

Felipe, Good representation of this Sulper Tuft cluster. I think you succeeded well in preserving the natural tones & colors as you stated in your note. Good job!

Very nice shot, Felipe. Very good colour and DOF. Could possibly be improved by fill in flash?? Good note as well.

Very nice Felipe,.
Great perspective, nice colours and good details.
Agree with Ben about a fill in flash.

Nice work Felipe, I like this little tuft, the DOF is spot on. I like the subdued lighting, it makes me feel like I am there.

I have this problem too, As I pick up my camera to photograph one person, suddenly there would be a lot of people in front of the lens :) This is a very nice family picture. The image is sharp and the composition good. I do however agree with Ben that a fill flash would have added to the impact of the shot. Thanks for posting

Hi Felipe,
Beautiful photo, however, the "model" is not Hypholoma fasciculare, but Lacrymaria lacrymabunda (Bull.) Pat., the velum on the stem and the gill colors correspond.
Kind regards, László
