[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In principle I went to the forest for relax. Weather was very favourable. I've gathered few species mushrooms and maybe last King bolete . This on the photo I've leaved.
Cortinarius caperatus, commonly known as the gypsy mushroom, is a highly esteemed edible mushroom of the genus Cortinarius found in Europe and The Americas.
The gypsy mushroom has a checkered taxonomic history. It was originally described by Christian Hendrik Persoon in 1796, before being transferred to Cortinarius by Elias Magnus Fries. Later it was transferred to Pholiota and then Rozites. It was known as Rozites caperata (Pers.) P. Karst. (1879) for many years before recent genetic study once more placed it within Cortinarius in 2002
