Mustard Hebeloma (Hebeloma sinapizans)

Mustard Hebeloma (Hebeloma sinapizans) – the mushroom cap is fleshy and dense, while the young mushroom shape is cone-shaped, subsequently prostrate, the edges are wavy and a wide tubercle. The skin is smooth, shiny, slightly sticky. The size of the cap is 5 to 15 cm in diameter. The color is from cream to reddish-brown, the edges are usually lighter than the main color.

The plates under the cap are not often located, the edges are rounded and mealy. The color is white or beige. Over time, they acquire the color of mustard (for this, the mushroom was named 'mustard hebeloma').

Spores are ocher colored.

The stem is voluminous and cylindrical, thickened at the base. The structure is rigid and fibrous, spongy inside. If you make a longitudinal section of the leg, it is clearly visible how a wedge-shaped layer descends from the cap into the hollow part. The surface is covered with small brownish scales from which a ring-shaped pattern is built along the entire leg. Height can reach 15 centimeters.

The pulp is fleshy, dense, white. Has a radish smell and a bitter taste.

Distribution: Gebeloma mustard occurs in nature very often. It grows in summer and autumn in coniferous and deciduous forests, more often at forest edges. Bears fruit and grows in large groups.

Edibility: The Gebeloma mustard mushroom is toxic and poisonous. Symptoms of poisoning – colic in the abdomen, diarrhea, vomiting, appear a few hours after eating this toxic mushroom.
