Beautiful Ramaria (Ramaria formosa)

This mushroom can reach a height of about 20 cm, and be the same in diameter. The color of the mushroom consists of three colors – white, pink and yellow. Beautiful Ramaria has a short leg, quite dense and massive. At first, it is painted in a bright pink color, and by adulthood it becomes white. This mushroom forms thin, profusely branching shoots, white-yellow at the bottom and yellow-pink at the top, with yellow ends. Old mushrooms have a uniform brown-brown color. If you press lightly on the flesh of the mushroom, then in some cases it turns red. The taste is bitter.

Ramaria formosa

Ramaria is beautiful usually found in deciduous forests. Old mushrooms are similar in appearance to other yellowish or brown horned heads.
