Pine hymnopil (Gymnopilus sapineus)

Gymnopil belongs to the large family of Stropharia.

It grows everywhere (Europe, Russia, North America), while the time of appearance of these mushrooms is different in different regions. The general term is from late June to early October.

Prefers conifers, but is often found in deciduous forests. It grows on stumps, rotting branches, whole groups of hymnopils are found on dead wood.

Fruiting bodies are represented by a cap and a leg.

The cap measures up to 8-10 cm, in young specimens it is convex, bell-shaped. At a more mature age, the fungus becomes flat, while the surface is smooth and dry. There may be small flakes on the surface, cracking. The structure is fibrous. Color – golden, ocher, yellow, with brown shades, brown. Often the center of the cap is darker than the edges.

Gymnopil belongs to the lamellar species, while the plates under the cap are thin, they are quite wide, and can grow. In young mushrooms, the color of the plates is light, amber, in old ones – brown, and spots may also appear on them.

The leg is small in height (up to about five centimeters), at the bottom it can bend. There are traces of the bedspread (a little), inside – solid below, closer to the mushroom cap – hollow. The color of the leg of young mushrooms is brown, then it begins to turn white, acquiring a creamy color. Becomes brown on the cut.

The pulp of the hymnopil is very elastic, the color is yellow, golden, while if you cut it, it immediately darkens. The smell is specific – sour, sharp, not very pleasant. It tastes bitter.

The pine hymnopil is very similar to other mushrooms of this species, for example, the penetrating hymnopil. But he has a smaller fruiting body.

Gymnopilus sapineus belongs to the category of inedible mushrooms.
