Webcap yellow

Yellow spiderweb cap: 7-12 cm in diameter, hemispherical in youth, becomes cushion-shaped with age, half-extended; there are often noticeable scraps of a web-like bedspread at the edges. Color – orange-yellow, in the central part, as a rule, darker; the surface is sticky, although it can dry out in very dry weather. The flesh of the cap is thick, soft, white-yellowish in color, with an almost pleasant odor, not typical for cobwebs.

Plates: Weakly adherent, narrow, frequent, light cream in youth, change color with age, acquiring a smoky and then bluish-brown color. In young specimens, they are completely covered with a light gossamer blanket.

Spore powder: Rusty brown.

Leg: The leg of a yellow spider web is 8-15 cm high, 1-3 cm thick, in youth it is strongly thickened in the lower part, with age it acquires a regular cylindrical shape. In young specimens, the bracelet remains of the cortina are clearly visible.

Distribution: Yellow webcap grows from mid-August to the end of September in deciduous foxes, forming mycorrhiza mainly with birch. Prefers dry places; can be considered a companion of the black mushroom (Lactarius necator). The place and time of the most intensive fruiting of these two species often coincide.

Similar species: The yellow webcap is one of the easiest cobwebs to identify. Nevertheless, there are indeed a lot of similar species. The yellow webcap is classified only by a combination of characteristics – from the shape of the fruiting body to the time and place of growth.

Edible: Yellow spiderweb in foreign sources is classified as inedible mushrooms; Russian authors have a different opinion. SOUTH. Semenov in his book calls the yellow webcap the most delicious cobweb.

Remarks Black mushroom and yellow webcap are what stands before your eyes after several days of forest fermentation in mid-September. A lump in a basket, a webcap in the forest. I'll have to try the other way around somehow. It is interesting to get acquainted with the yellow spider web from the culinary side, but of course, it is not possible to collect both abundant mushrooms at the same time. You have to choose.
