Mushroom Ryadovka soap (Latin Tricholoma saponaceum) belongs to the genus of mushrooms of the Ryadovkov family. Basically, the family of these mushrooms grows in rows, for which it got its name.
Soapy ryadovka is named for the rather unpleasant odor of laundry soap emitted.
The hat of a row of soap is initially hemispherical, convex, later almost prostrate, polymorphic, reaching from 5 to 15 cm (occasionally 25 cm), smooth or scaly, wrinkled in dry weather, slightly sticky in wet weather, sometimes separated by small cracks. Cap color ranges from the more typical ocher-gray, gray, olive-gray to blackish-brown

Season and habitat of the mushroom
Rowing soap is considered a widespread mushroom. The fungus is found in conifers (forms mycorrhiza with spruce) and deciduous forests, as well as meadows from late August to late October in large groups.
