Marasmiellus branch

Spriggelaceae (Marasmius ramealis)

The branchless sprig (Marasmius ramealis) is a mushroom belonging to the Tricholomov family, the Marazmielus genus.

External description

The pulp of the fruiting body of branch marasmiellus is springy, very thin, of the same color, without any shades. The mushroom consists of a cap and a leg. The diameter of the cap varies between 5-15 mm. In its shape, it is convex; in mature mushrooms it has a noticeable depression in the central part and becomes flat and spread. At the edges, it often has small, barely noticeable grooves and irregularities. The color at the cap of this mushroom is pinkish-white, in the central part it is necessarily darker than at the edges.

The leg is 3-20 mm in diameter, the color is the same as the cap, its surface is noticeably darker downwards, covered with a layer of 'dandruff', often curved, near the base it is thinner, has a downy.

The fungal hymenophore is of the lamellar type. Its components are thin and sparsely spaced plates, often growing to the surface of the mushroom stem. They are white in color, sometimes slightly pinkish. The spore powder is characterized by a white color, and the spores themselves are colorless, characterized by an oblong and elliptical shape.

Season and habitat of the mushroom

The branchless plant (Marasmius ramealis) prefers to grow in colonies, settling on fallen, dead tree branches and old rotten stumps. Its active fruiting continues from the very beginning of summer until the onset of winter.

The small size of the fruiting body of the sprigs non-pot does not allow the mushroom to be considered edible. However, there are no toxic components in the composition of its fruiting bodies, and this mushroom cannot be called poisonous. Some mycologists classify the branchless non-fungus as an inedible, poorly studied mushroom.

Similar types and differences from them

The nonnium sprig has slight similarities with the mushrooms of the species Marasmiellus vaillantii.
