Silver row (Tricholoma scalpturatum)

Row silver (Tricholoma scalpturatum) is a mushroom belonging to the Tricholomov family, the Agarikov class.

External description

The fruiting body of the silvery row consists of a cap and a leg. The diameter of the cap varies within 3-8 cm, in young mushrooms it has a convex shape, and in mature mushrooms it is prostrate, with a tubercle in the central part. Sometimes it can be concave. In ripe mushrooms, the edges of the cap are wavy, bent, often torn. The fruit body is covered with a skin with the finest fibers or small scales, pressed to the surface. in color, this skin is often gray, but it can be gray-brown-yellow or silvery-brownish. In overripe fruit bodies, the surface is often covered with specks of lemon-yellow color.

The fungal hymenophore is lamellar, its constituent particles are plates, they grow together with a tooth, often located in relation to each other. In young fruit bodies, the plates are white, and in mature ones, they turn yellow in the direction from the edges to the central part. Often on the plates of overripe fruit bodies of a silvery row, you can see yellowish spots, unevenly distributed over the surface.

The height of the stalk at the silvery row varies within 4-6 cm, and the diameter of the mushroom stalk is 0.5-0.7 cm.It is silky to the touch, thin fibers are visible to the naked eye. The shape of the stem of the described mushroom is cylindrical, and sometimes small pieces of skin are visible on its surface, which are the remains of a common veil. In color, this part of the fruiting body is gray or whitish.

Mushroom pulp is very thin in structure, fragile, with a powdery color and aroma.

Season and habitat of the fungus

Row silver grows in forests of various types. Often, this type of mushroom can be found in the middle of parks, squares, gardens, forest shelters, along roadsides, in grassy areas. You can see the described mushroom as part of large groups, since the scaly row often forms the so-called witch's circles (when whole colonies of mushrooms are connected to each other in large bundles). The fungus prefers to grow on calcareous soils. On the territory of Russia and, in particular, the Moscow region, the fruiting of silvery rows begins in June and continues until the second half of autumn. In the southern regions of the country, this mushroom begins to bear fruit in May, and the duration (during warm winters) is about six months (until December).


The taste of the silvery ryadovka is mediocre, this mushroom is recommended to be eaten salted, pickled or fresh. It is advisable to boil the silver ryadovka before eating, and drain the broth. It is interesting that when this type of mushroom is pickled, their fruit bodies change their color, becoming green-yellow.

Similar types and differences from them

Often, another type of mushroom is called a silvery (scaly) row, Tricholoma imbricatum. However, both of these ryadovki belong to completely different categories of mushrooms. The silvery ryadovka described by us is similar in its external features to earthy ryadovka, as well as to above-soil tricholom mushrooms. Very often these types of mushrooms grow in the same place, at the same time. It also looks like a poisonous tiger row.
