Clavicorona cryotus (lat.Artomyces pyxidatus) is a conditionally edible mushroom from the genus Artomyces (lat.Artomyces).
Description: Fruiting body 5-10 (20) cm in height, bushy, with long vertical branches of yellowish-ocher color with a fawn and pinkish tinge and pale obtuse, with jagged crown-shaped tips at the edges.
The leg is short, light.
The pulp is tough, rubbery, watery, bitter, yellow-brownish.
Distribution: Clavicorona porciform grows from early June to September (massively in the first half of September) on rotten hardwood (aspen), in groups, sometimes singly, not uncommon.
Evaluation: Clavicorona crynate is considered inedible due to its hard consistency. But at a young age it is quite suitable for use.
