Hat: small, only one to three cm in diameter. In youth, the cap is convex and has the shape of a hemisphere. The rolled up velvety edge of the cap becomes practically open with age. In older mushrooms, the cap often takes an irregular shape with wavy edges. As the fungus grows, the edges express a specific lamellar scarring. The surface of the cap is yellowish or brown in color, covered with small white flakes, often along the edges and less often in the center. However, the flakes are very easily washed off by the rain, and the mushroom becomes almost unrecognizable.

Flesh: pale yellow, thin, watery. Has a pungent smell or, according to some sources, has no smell at all. It is believed that the presence and absence of odor is associated with frost.

Blades: not very frequent, wide, thick, weakly adherent with well visible veins. In the same tone as the hat or slightly lighter. If you look closely at the plates, you can immediately determine the branched tubaria, since they are not only veined and rare, they are completely monochromatic. In other similar species, it is found that the plates along the edges are colored differently and the impression of 'relief' is created, but this sign does not allow one to confidently distinguish Tubaria from other small brown mushrooms, and even more so from other mushrooms of the Tubaria species.

Spore powder: clay-brown.

Leg: Moderately short, 2-5 cm long, 0.2-0.4 cm thick. Fibrous, hollow, pubescent at the base. Covered with white small flakes, as well as the cap. Young mushrooms may have small, private blankets that are quickly washed away by dew and rain.

Distribution: During the summer, the mushroom is often found, according to some sources it can be found in the fall. Can grow on soil rich in woody humus, but more often prefers old woody residues of deciduous species. Tubaria does not form large clusters, and therefore remains inconspicuous for the broad masses of mushroom pickers.

Similarity: Similar mushrooms during the period when most of the finds of this mushroom are noted – namely, in May, you can not find many, and they all belong to the genus Tubaria. In the autumn period, an ordinary amateur mushroom picker is unlikely to be able to distinguish Tubaria from other small brown mushrooms with adherent plates and gallerinas similar to it.

Edible: Tubaria has a very close resemblance to gallerina, therefore, experiments were not carried out with respect to its edibility.

Notes: At first glance, Tubaria seems completely inconspicuous and inconspicuous, but upon closer examination, you can see how unusual and beautiful it is. It seems that the branched Tubaria is showered with something like pearls.
