Hat: in a young mushroom, the cap has a bell-shaped or convex shape, then, as it matures, it becomes wide-convex, outstretched, almost flat. A sharp noticeable tubercle remains in the central part of the cap. At a young age, a watery, smooth cap is covered with whitish filaments, the remains of a destroyed bedspread. The diameter of the cap is from two to three centimeters. The surface of the cap has a honey-yellow or yellowish-brown color, sometimes with whitish fibers along the edges. With age, the color of the cap fades and becomes dark yellow.

Stem: threadlike long stem, eight to thirteen centimeters high. The leg is very thin, flaky, mealy, light yellow in color. In the lower part of the leg, as a rule, there are whitish zones, remnants of a cobweb blanket. At the top of the leg there is a white ring.

Flesh: brittle, thin, the same color as the surface of the cap. The pulp does not have a pronounced taste and has a light pleasant taste.

Hymenophore: The lamellar hymenophore consists of frequent and rather rare plates, adherent to the base of the pedicle or descending along it with a tooth. In young fungi, the plates are light brown; as the spores mature, the plates darken and acquire an ocher-brown color with lighter edges. The plates are yellowish-brown, notched. Spore powder: ocher color.

Disputes: broad, ovoid, sometimes germinating. Cheilocystids: fusiform, numerous. Basidia: Consisting of four spores. Pleurocystids are absent. The skin on the cap is also missing. Gifs with buckles up to 15 microns thick.


Galerina Bolotnaya, found in forests of various types, mainly in swampy areas, among sphagnum. Bryophilus. This species is quite widespread in North America and Europe. Prefers mossy swampy soils. Occurs from late June to late September. Grows in small groups, but often singly.


Marsh Galerina is not eaten, it is considered a poisonous mushroom.


It resembles Galerina tibiicystis, which differs in the form of cheilocystids, spores and lack of a veil.
