Inedible mushroom ryadovka sulfur-yellow

Inedible mushroom ryadovka sulfur-yellowRows have more than 2500 species, most of which are edible or conditionally edible, and only a small part of them are poisonous. One of these mushrooms is the sulfur-yellow ryadovka, which will be discussed in this article.

The opinions of mycologists regarding the sulfur-yellow mushroom are very different. Some consider it poisonous, others simply inedible. In Russia, this mushroom is classified as a poisonous species that has low toxicity. Still, it should be said that in most reference publications designed to identify and describe fruiting bodies, the sulfur-yellow row is considered inedible. At the same time, other sources indicate that the mushroom is poisonous, although not fatal. The worst that can happen from eating this fruiting body is mild poisoning in the form of an intestinal disorder, without death.

A sulfuric false row grows in deciduous and coniferous forests, more often on the soil, sometimes on fallen trees and stumps that are covered with moss.

Fruiting of the fungus begins in mid-August and continues until the first frost.

It is important to remember! Since the description of the poisonous representative of the ordinary family is very similar to the description of the edible greenfinch, they should be collected only by those who can accurately identify an edible specimen from an inedible one. Therefore, if you are not sure which mushroom is in front of you, do not risk cutting it. Being careful in this matter will help you avoid the unpleasant consequences that false rows can cause.
