Oily Glyophorus (Gliophorus unguinosus) Oily Glyophore is found in Eurasia, some regions of North America. In the Russian Federation, mushroom pickers found it in the Far East, in Karelia, in the Urals, as well as in the regions of the North-West (Pskov, Leningrad, Murmansk).

Season – early August – late October (in some years there may be no mushrooms).

It prefers to grow in grass, meadows, clearings of deciduous and mixed forests. Loves wet soils. Glyophore oily forms rather large groups (up to 15 specimens).

Fruiting body – cap and leg. The fungus belongs to the lamellar species. The hat is up to 5-7 centimeters in diameter, beige, silver, brown. In young mushrooms, it is very convex, later it is flat and spread. There may be a tubercle in the middle.

The plates under the cap are rare, the color is gray, whitish.

The leg reaches a length of up to 8 centimeters, the color is gray, beige. There is a lot of mucus on the surface of the leg, often there is a groove. The inside is hollow.

The pulp is gray, the smell and taste are neutral.

Glyophore oily is considered a rare fungus, while vigorous human activity (plowing of meadows, grazing) reduces the number of the species.

Inedible.
