Omphalin umbellifera (Omphalia umbellifera) is a mushroom belonging to the Tricholomaceae family.

External description

Omphalin umbellifera (Omphalia umbellifera) is the only species of algae that successfully cohabit with basidiospore fungi. This species is distinguished by the very small size of the caps, the diameter of which is only 0.8-1.5 cm. Initially, the caps are bell-shaped, but as the mushrooms mature, they open up, and there is an indentation on their surface. The edge of the caps is often grooved, ribbed, the flesh is thin, characterized by shades from white-yellow to olive-brown. The hymenophore is represented by plates located on the inner surface of the cap and characterized by a white-yellow color, rare and low location. The stem of this type of mushroom has a cylindrical shape, is small in length, from 0.8 to 2 cm, and has a pale yellow color. The leg thickness is 1-2 mm. The spore powder has no color, it consists of small particles with a size of 7-867 microns, having a smooth surface and the shape of a short ellipse.

Season and habitat

Omphalin umbellifera (Omphalia umbellifera) is an infrequent mushroom. It grows mainly on rotten stumps in the middle of coniferous or mixed forests, under spruces or pines. Often this type of mushroom grows on peat bogs or just bare ground. The fruiting period of the umbellate omphaline falls from mid-summer (July) to mid-autumn (late October).



Similar types and differences from them
