Anise talker

Hat: Diameter 3-10 cm, bluish-green in youth, convex, with a curled edge, then fading to yellow-gray, prostrate, sometimes concave. The flesh is thin, pale gray or pale green, with a strong aniseed-dill aroma and weak taste.

Plates: Frequent, descending, pale greenish.

Spore powder: White.

Leg: Length up to 8 cm, thickness up to 1 cm, thickened at the base, cap color or lighter.

Distribution: Grows from August to October in coniferous and deciduous forests.

Similar species: There are plenty of similar rows and talkers; Clitocybe odora can be unmistakably distinguished by a combination of two features: a characteristic color and anise smell. One single sign does not mean anything yet.

Edible: The mushroom is edible, although the strong smell persists after cooking. In a word, for an amateur.

Video about mushroom Aniseed Govorushka:

Note: This mushroom is attractive at least in that it allows you to identify itself with a high degree of probability, which cannot be said about many other members of the genus Clitocybe. As practice has shown, with a sufficient harvest (and in dry warm weather), it can be determined without picking it up and not even bending down. You can not see it at all: the thick smell of anise is given out by the mushroom head. If someone likes this scent, it makes sense to rip off a few young hats and put them on the bottom of the basket; walk like this for several hours, and all summer it will seem that the anise talker is somewhere nearby.
